“approved disinfectant” has the meaning assigned to it in the Diseases of Animals (Approved Disinfectants) (Jersey) Order 1958;[3]

“disease” means Teschen disease;

“disinfected” means disinfected with an approved disinfectant;

“Law” means the Diseases of Animals (Jersey) Law 1956; [4]

“premises” includes land.

(2)    For the purposes of this Order, and for the purposes of Articles 3, 4, 6, 10 and 42 of the Law in so far as they may be applicable to the making, administration and enforcement of this Order, the definition of “disease” is extended so as to include Teschen disease.

2      Veterinary examination

Where notice has been given under Article 4 of the Law that any swine or the carcase of any swine is affected with disease the Minister shall cause all the swine and the carcases of any swine on the premises on which the diseased swine or carcases are to be found to be examined by the Veterinary Officer.

3      Powers of inspection

(1)    Where there are grounds for suspecting that disease exists or has within 56 days existed on any premises, an inspector may enter on any part of the premises and examine the swine and any carcases of swine found on such premises for the purpose of ascertaining the existence or otherwise of disease.

The opinion of an inspector as to the existence or otherwise of disease shall be subject to confirmation by the Veterinary Officer.

(2)    The occupier of any such premises and any person in the occupier’s employment, the veterinary surgeon, if any, who has been attending or been consulted respecting the said swine or carcases, and any person who has been in charge of the swine or carcases or in any manner exposed to infection by contact with them or otherwise shall render such reasonable assistance to the inspector as may be required, and shall give all reasonable facilities for the taking of such samples as may be required for the purpose of diagnosis and generally for the due execution and enforcement of the provisions of this Order.

(3)    Any such occupier, veterinary surgeon or person as aforesaid shall, if so required by an inspector, give such information as he or she possesses as to the swine or carcases, as to the location and movements of any other swine in his or her possession or charge and as to any premises which he or she may have visited where swine are or were kept.

4      Declaration of infected place

(1)    Where disease exists on any premises or where there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that disease exists or has within the preceding 56 days existed on any premises, the Veterinary Officer shall forthwith inform the Minister of the fact, and the Minister may declare those premises to be an infected place:

Provided that no such declaration may be made in respect of the premises of the States’ Slaughterhouse.

(2)    The Minister, as soon as may be after declaring any premises to be an infected place, shall cause to be served on the occupier of those premises a notice of such declaration in the form specified in Schedule 1.

(3)    On the service of a notice under paragraph (2) and until the cancellation of such notice under Article 6 the premises specified in the notice shall be subject to the rules set out in Article 5.

Rule 7 – Every person entering any part of an infected place shall wear suitable disposable overall clothing or suitable overall clothing which is capable of being disinfected, and boots which are capable of being disinfected.

Rule 8 – The occupier of the premises shall provide a receptacle containing an approved disinfectant in some convenient place (as directed by an inspector) at every exit from an infected place. Every person immediately before leaving an infected place shall thoroughly cleanse and disinfect his or her overall, clothing and boots in a receptacle so provided and also wash his or her hands with soap and water, and if wearing disposable overall clothing shall leave it on the infected place.

Rule 9 – Notice of the death of any swine in an infected place shall be given by the owner or person in charge thereof with all practicable speed to the Minister.

6      Cancellation of notice

8      Restrictions affecting swine and carcases on premises exposed to infection

(1)    Where as respects any premises the Minister is of the opinion that disease may be spread thereto, or is satisfied that there is, or has been thereon within the preceding 56 days, any swine which is, or within the said period has been, exposed to the risk of infection of disease, the Minister may cause to be served a notice in the form set out in Schedule 4 on the occupier of any such premises.

(2)    On the service of such a notice and until the operation of the notice terminates or until the Minister causes the notice to be withdrawn by a further notice in the form set out in Schedule 5 –

10    Power of Minister to prohibit or control movement

Where the Minister has reasonable grounds for believing that the movement of any swine, or the carcase of any swine or of any thing from any place may be attended with a risk of spread of disease the Minister may, for the purpose of preventing the spread of the disease, cause to be served a notice in writing on the owner or occupier of the place, or on the owner or person in charge of the swine, carcase or thing, prohibiting or restricting, subject to such conditions as may be specified in the notice, the movement of any such swine, carcase or thing, for such period as may be specified therein.
