Slaughter of bovine animals

This section has no associated Executive Note

12.—(1) It is an offence for the occupier to use a slaughterhouse to slaughter for human consumption a bovine animal that, in accordance with point 2 of Part I of Chapter A of Annex III to the EU TSE Regulation (monitoring in animals slaughtered for human consumption), requires BSE testing at slaughter, unless the Scottish Ministers have approved the Required Method of Operation (“RMOP”) for that slaughterhouse and that occupier.

(2) The RMOP must, as a minimum, describe—

(a)the procedures that will be followed to comply with Part 1 of this Schedule; and

(b)all the systems and procedures required by Part 2 of this Schedule.

(3) The Scottish Ministers must approve the RMOP if they are satisfied that all the requirements of the EU TSE Regulation and these Regulations will be complied with, and the occupier must demonstrate this by means of an assessment of 2 days’ duration during which animals are slaughtered (using bovine animals that are not required, under point 2 of Part I of Chapter A of Annex III to the EU TSE Regulation, to be tested for BSE).

(4) If a bovine animal referred to in sub-paragraph (1) is slaughtered for human consumption other than in accordance with the RMOP, the occupier of the slaughterhouse is guilty of an offence.
