The African Horse Sickness (Wales) Regulations 2013

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally made). This item of legislation is currently only available in its original format.

Initial controls following notification

7.—(1) This regulation applies where the Welsh Ministers receive a notification under regulation 5(1) and a veterinary inspector considers that further investigation relating to the possible presence of African horse sickness virus is necessary.

(2) A veterinary inspector must inform (orally or otherwise) the person who gave the notification that further investigation is necessary.

(3) Where that person has been so informed, the controls in paragraph (7) apply in relation to the premises where the notified horse or carcase (as the case may be) is located.

(4) Where those premises are not the premises where the notified horse is normally kept or, in the case of a notified carcase, the horse before it died was normally kept, a veterinary inspector may also inform (orally or otherwise) the main occupier of those other premises that further investigation is necessary.

(5) Where that main occupier has been so informed, the controls in paragraph (7), other than in sub-paragraph (a)(i), apply in relation to those other premises.

(6) A veterinary inspector—

(a)must go to the premises where the notified horse or carcase is located and examine that horse or carcase, and may examine any other horse or carcase there;

(b)where paragraph (4) applies, may go to those other premises and examine any horse or carcase there.

(7) The controls are that—

(a)any person in possession or charge of a notified horse or carcase must ensure that—

(i)the notified horse or carcase is not moved from the premises where it is located,

(ii)no equipment or genetic material is moved from the premises,

(iii)no other horse or carcase is moved from or to the premises, except that any horse normally kept at the premises may return there; and

(b)if required by a veterinary inspector and to the extent that it is practicable to do so the main occupier must ensure that—

(i)all horses are moved away from any part of the premises where most vectors are likely to be present;

(ii)areas which may be breeding grounds for vectors are identified and any available vector control measures directed by a veterinary inspector are implemented.

(8) The controls imposed under this regulation continue to apply until—

(a)a veterinary inspector confirms (orally or otherwise) to any occupier of the premises that the presence of African horse sickness virus on the premises is not suspected, or

(b)the premises become suspect premises(1).

(1)

At which point other measures have effect: see regulation 8(2).
