Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Zootechnical Standards Regulations 1992, S.I. 1992/2370 (“the 1992 Regulations”).

The amendments give effect to the amendments to Council Directive 87/328/EEC on the acceptance for breeding purposes of pure-bred breeding animals of the bovine species (OJ 1 167, 26.6.1987, p. 54) made by Council Directive 2005/24/EC with regard to the use of ova and embryos and storage centres for semen from pure-bred breeding animals of the bovine species (OJ L78, 24.3.2005, p.43).

New regulation 6 of the 1992 Regulations, added by regulation 2 of these Regulations, places obligations on recognised organisations in relation to the collection, processing and storage of bovine semen. (The term “recognised organisation” is defined in regulation 2(1) of the 1992 Regulations.)

Part V of Schedule 3 of the 1992 Regulations is amended to require recognised organisations to accept for breeding purposes bovine ova and embryos.

A regulatory impact assessment has not been prepared for this instrument.
