Consultation description

Summary

Defra invites views on the proposed Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2012.

The proposed new Regulations would amend and update the existing Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (England) Regulations 2010. The proposed amendments can be divided into three elements:

  • To update the 2010 Regulations to reflect the full range of options available in EU TSE legislation for controlling classical scrapie and to take the option of monitoring holdings affected by classical scrapie, as opposed to genotyping of sheep followed by killing and destruction of classical scrapie susceptible animals, as our default position for all current and future cases.
  • To update the 2010 Regulations to align compensation rates for BSE with the Cattle Compensation (England) Order 2012, which will come into force on 1 July 2012. This will better reflect market values in determining compensation for BSE, and maintain its existing alignment with that for other major notifiable cattle diseases.
  • To make minor technical amendments to the 2010 Regulations which will fulfil Government requirements on better regulation, clarify enforcement procedures, limit unqualified appeals against killing of cattle, and remove an obligation and an offence.

You may comment on any aspect of the proposals.
