Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the Disease Control (Interim Measures) (Wales) Order 2002 (the “principal Order”) (S.I. 2002/280 (W.32)). It comes into force at mid-day on 10th April 2002.

The amendments made are as follows—

(a)the definition of hunting in article 2 of the principal Order is amended to include a reference to “hare” (article 2(2));

(b)movements of sheep, goats, camelids and deer to places for veterinary treatment, provided they will be isolated from other animals whilst there, are added to the list of movements, set out in article 3(2)(b) of the principal Order, which are exempt from the standstill requirement set out and defined in article 3(1)(b) of that Order (the “standstill requirement”) (article 2(3)(a));

(c)the return of the animals referred to in (b) above from the place for veterinary treatment together with any offspring born there (provided they and the offspring have been isolated from other animals whilst there) is added to the list of movements set out in article 3(3) of the principal Order which are exempt from giving rise to the standstill requirement on the animals' premises of origin; (article 2(3)(b));

(d)the equivalent existing exemptions with regard to the standstill requirement as they apply to cattle movements to and from places for veterinary treatment are amended so as to require the cattle to be isolated from other animals whilst there (article 2(3)(a) and (b));

(e)the list of movements set out in article 3(3) of the principal Order which do not give rise to a standstill requirement is also amended so that the passage of a camelid through any premises on a trekking expedition will not give rise to a standstill requirement there (article 2(3)(b));

(f)the requirement (pursuant to article 3(3)(a)(i) and 3(5) of the principal Order) that pigs be isolated in approved isolation facilities on returning to their premises of origin from artificial insemination centres or places to which they have been moved for breeding or veterinary treatment, if that return is not to give rise to a standstill requirement at those premises, is replaced with a requirement that they be isolated only from all other animals at those premises for 20 days after their return (article 2(3)(c)).

A regulatory appraisal has not been prepared for this Order.
