Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations which are now called The Foot-and-Mouth Disease (Export Restrictions) (Wales) Regulations 2007, and which apply in relation to Wales, revoke and re-make with amendments the Import and Export Restrictions (Foot-and-Mouth Disease) (No.2) (Wales) Regulations 2007. They implement Commission Decision 2007/588/EC which amends Commission Decision 2007/554/EC concerning certain protection measures against foot-and-mouth disease in the United Kingdom.

They regulate—

(a)the export and movement of live animals (regulation 4);

(b)the export of meat from bovine, ovine caprine and porcine animals and other biungulates, and the sale of meat not eligible for export (regulation 5);

(c)the export of meat products, milk and dairy products (regulations 6, 7 and 8);

(d)the export of semen, ova or embryos of animals of the bovine, ovine, caprine and porcine species and other biungulates (regulation 9), hides and skins (regulation 10) and various animal products (regulation 11);

They create an offence of offering to export anything which it is prohibited to export under the Regulations (regulation 14).

They provide powers for enforcement, and powers for officers of Revenue and Customs (regulations 15 to 17) and create an offence of obstruction (regulation 18).

Breach of the Regulations is an offence, punishable—

(a)on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum or to imprisonment not exceeding three months or to both;

(b)on conviction on indictment, to a fine or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or to both.

The Regulations are enforced by the Welsh Ministers or the local authority (regulation 24).
