Identification and restriction of other bovines, cohorts and offspring

4.—(1) For the purposes of Article 12(1), following suspicion of a TSE (whether in a live animal or through monitoring), an inspector—

(a)must serve a notice prohibiting the movement from its holding of any bovine animal on the same holding as the suspect animal if the inspector considers that the suspect animal was exposed to a TSE on that holding;

(b)may serve a notice prohibiting the movement onto or from any holding of any bovine animal if there is evidence that the suspect animal was exposed to a TSE on that holding.

(2) The inspector must identify—

(a)(if the suspect animal is female) all its offspring born within two years prior to, or after—

(i)clinical onset of the disease, or

(ii)where the animal did not present with clinical disease, the date of its death; and

(b)(in all cases) all its bovine cohorts born on or after 1 August 1996,

and for these purposes an animal’s date of birth is the one shown on its cattle passport.

(3) An inspector must serve notices prohibiting movement of those animals from the holding on which they are kept or where that inspector suspects they may be kept (whether or not this is the same holding as that of the suspect animal) and remove their cattle passports.

(4) If the animals in sub-paragraph (2) cannot be immediately identified an inspector may prohibit the movement of any bovine animal from the holding pending identification.

(5) Movements of restricted animals are only permitted in accordance with regulation 18.
