We are consulting jointly with the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs and the Food Standards Agency on proposed amendments to the Welsh and English regulations on transmissible spongiform encephalopathies.
The amendments would:
- bring UK law regarding controls on feeding animal protein and handling of specified risk material into line with EU regulations
- update the use of valuers and compensation categories for cattle killed or destroyed on suspicion of BSE in Wales
- transfer the cost of sampling fallen cattle, which require testing for BSE, to the farming industry.
