Veterinary enquiry as to the existence of disease

7.—(1) Where a veterinary inspector has reason to believe an affected animal or a suspected animal (other than a reactor) or a carcase of a bovine animal which is affected with or suspected of being affected with tuberculosis is present on any premises, he or she must, with all practicable speed, take such steps as may be necessary to establish whether it is in fact an affected or suspected animal or carcase.

(2) For the purpose of carrying out his or her duties under this article a veterinary inspector may examine any bovine animal or carcase of a bovine animal on the premises and take such samples from any such animal or carcase or carry out such tests as may be required for the purpose of diagnosis.

(3) A veterinary inspector must serve a notice on the keeper of any bovine animal examined by him or her which in his or her opinion is an affected or suspected animal, requiring the keeper to—

(a)detain that animal in accordance with the requirements of the notice and keep it isolated from other bovine animals;

(b)where appropriate take steps to ensure that the milk produced by the animal is not mixed with other milk and is boiled or otherwise sterilized and that any utensil with which such milk has been in contact before it is so treated must be thoroughly cleansed and scalded with steam or boiling water before the utensil is used again; and

(c)ensure that no bovine animal is moved on to or off the premises or such part of the premises as is specified in the notice except under the authority of a licence issued by an inspector.
