Regulation 19

SCHEDULE 8Approval of quarantine centres and quarantine facilities and specific requirements for the quarantine of captive birds

PART IAPPROVALS

1.  The National Assembly may, if it is satisfied in all the circumstances that it is appropriate to do so, grant to a quarantine manager an approval in respect of—

(a)a quarantine centre for which the quarantine manager has charge and which at least meets the minimum conditions set out in Annex B of Commission Decision 2000/666/EC (in this Schedule, “the Decision”) in relation to quarantine centres and quarantine units; and

(b)a quarantine facility for which the quarantine manager has charge and which at least meets the minimum conditions set out in Annex B of the Decision in relation to quarantine facilities.

2.  Subject to the provisions of paragraph 4 of this Part, an approval expires at the end of 12 months from the date of its being granted unless—

(a)the transitional arrangements in Part IV apply;

(b)an earlier expiry date is provided for at the grant of an approval under paragraph 1; or

(c)it is revoked under regulation 1(6).

3.  The National Assembly must give reasons in writing—

(a)for refusing an application for an approval provided for under this Schedule;

(b)for attaching conditions to an approval granted under this Schedule;

(c)for providing that such an approval will expire earlier than 12 months from the date of its being granted.

(a)take effect when it is served, unless otherwise stated in the notice;

(b)state—

(i)the reasons for the revocation or suspension, and

(c)be served upon the quarantine manager—

(i)in person, or by leaving it at the quarantine centre or quarantine facility concerned; or

(ii)by post addressed to the quarantine manager at the quarantine centre or quarantine facility concerned, in which case it will be deemed to be served at 12 noon on the second day after posting it; and

(d)be copied to the importer, and so far as is practicable, if the importer is not the owner of the birds concerned, to the owner of the birds kept at the quarantine centre or quarantine facility at the date the revocation or suspension is to take effect.

5.  Where an approval is revoked or is to be revoked and the continuation of quarantine at the quarantine centre or quarantine facility concerned would in the opinion of a veterinary inspector cause a significant public or animal health risk, the veterinary inspector may issue directions by notice as to the movement or disposal of birds held in quarantine at the time the notice of revocation is stated to take effect, and such notice must be served and copied to any importer and owner concerned as if it were a notice to which paragraph 4(c) and (d) applied.

3.  No bird at a quarantine centre may share a unit with any other bird unless that other bird arrived in the same consignment as the first bird, and in the event that one bird shares a unit with another, the quarantine period for any bird in the unit is to be extended to expire no sooner than 30 days after the last bird was placed in the unit.

4.  Psittaciformes must be identified individually in accordance with the requirements of Part B of Chapter 2 of Annex B to the Decision.

9.  The destruction, cleansing and disinfection and post-infection sampling from sentinel chickens or other birds in other units (in the case of quarantine centres), and the restrictions on movements onto or off the quarantine centre or quarantine facility must conform with Article 4(4) of the Decision, unless notice is served under regulation 21(2)(b).

10.  Cages and crates used for the transport of birds to the quarantine centre or quarantine facility must be destroyed by the quarantine manager in such a way as to avoid the spread of disease, unless the cages or crates are made of a material which allows effective cleaning and disinfection, in which case they may be cleansed, disinfected and re-used.

11.  Litter and waste material from the quarantine centre or quarantine facility must be collected, stored and treated as approved or required in writing by the official veterinarian in accordance with paragraph 9 of Part A of Chapter 2 of Annex B to the Decision and in any event so as to avoid spread of disease.

3.  In reviewing the approval, the National Assembly must assess the premises, equipment, systems and operation of the quarantine centre or quarantine facility in question as if it were considering whether to grant an approval under paragraph 1 of Part I and may call for such information and documentation from the quarantine manager of the quarantine centre or quarantine facility concerned as it reasonably requires to conduct the review.

4.  After reviewing the approval, if the National Assembly is satisfied that it is appropriate in all the circumstances to permit the quarantine centre or quarantine facility in question to continue to be operated as such, it must—

(a)give notice accordingly to the quarantine manager of the quarantine centre or quarantine facility; and
