Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the Animal By-Products Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/646, the “principal Order”), so far as it is applicable to Wales, so as to prohibit the feeding to livestock of certain categories of catering waste whether that waste has been processed or is unprocessed. It also removes the possibility of non-mammalian animal by-products being rendered for the production of swill for feeding to pigs or poultry.

This Order has been notified in draft to the European Commission as a technical standard, pursuant to Directive 98/34/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (OJ No. L 204, 21.7.98, p.37) laying down a procedure for the provision of information in the field of technical standards and regulations (as last amended by Directive 98/48/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, OJ No. L217, 05.08.1998, p.18).

No regulatory appraisal for Wales alone has been prepared in relation to these Regulations but a regulatory impact assessment has been prepared for the whole of Great Britain. Copies can be obtained from the Animal Health (BSE) Division of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, 1A Page Street, London SW1P 4PQ.
