Guidance on Regulation (EC) 1069/2009 and accompanying implementing Regulation (EC) 142/2011, enforced in England by the Animal By- Products (Enforcement) (England) Regulations 2011

Regulation (EC) 1069/2009 laying down health rules as regards animal by-products and derived products not intended for human consumption and its accompanying implementing Regulation (EC) 142/2011 applies from 4 March 2011.

In England these Regulations are administered and enforced by the Animal By-Products (Enforcement) (England) Regulations 2011.

These guidance notes have been produced by the Defra to provide informal advice on how to comply with the legal requirements of the EU legislation and our domestic Animal By-Products (Enforcement) (England) Regulations 2011. This guidance explains the different categories of animal by-products, how they should be used or disposed of, and where this can safely be done. It also explains which animal by-products fall outside the Regulations.

This guidance is applicable to any person/business generating, using, disposing of, storing, handling or transporting animal by-products.
