(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order amends the Specified Animal Pathogens (Wales) Order 2008 (S.I. 2008/1270 (W.129)) to add a further pathogen (Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome virus genotype 2) to the Part 1 list in Schedule 1. The power to seize this specified pathogen will not apply as the resulting disease is not one that is covered by a slaughter requirement under the Animal Health Act 1981.
This Order has been notified in draft to the European Commission in accordance with Directive 98/34/EC (provision of information in the field of technical standards), as amended by Directive 98/48/EC .
1981 c. 22. Functions of the Minister and the Secretary of State transferred to the National Assembly for Wales by S.I. 1999/672 and S.I. 2004/3044.
