(3) All parts of the animal area (including any equipment) must be swept or scraped clean and then cleansed by washing and disinfected with an approved disinfectant.

(4) The licensee must ensure that all feedingstuffs to which animals had access, and all bedding, excreta, other material of animal origin and other contaminants derived from animals in the animal area are-

(a)destroyed;

(b)treated so as to remove the risk of transmission of disease; or

as soon as possible and before animals are allowed to enter the licensed premises again.

(5) If, following the last occasion on which the animal area was cleansed and disinfected in accordance with this article, it becomes contaminated with animal excreta or other material of animal origin or any contaminant derived from animals, then the animal area or those parts of it that have become so contaminated must be swept or scraped clean and then cleansed by washing and disinfected with an approved disinfectant before any animals are allowed on to the licensed premises again.
