The Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies and Animal By-Products (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 (Withdrawn)

The purpose of this EU exit instrument is to ensure that five pieces of direct EU legislation will be fully operable when the UK leaves the EU. It relates to animal disease prevention which is a devolved matter and is implemented and enforced by similar EU-derived domestic legislation in each constituent nation of the UK. The retained direct EU legislation is being amended using powers contained in the EU (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (the “Withdrawal Act”) and relates to the control and eradication of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) and to the use, disposal, placing on the market and import of animal by-products (ABPs). This instrument will enable the retained direct EU legislation to operate effectively immediately after the UK’s exit from the European Union.
