Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order.)
This Order amends the definition of “scheme animal” in Article 2(1) of the Specified Bovine Material Order (Northern Ireland) 1996 (“the principal Order”) so that the various requirements of that Order regarding the separation of specified bovine material and other animal parts which are already disapplied in relation to the carcases of animals slaughtered pursuant to the purchase scheme introduced under Commission Regulation (EC) No. 716/96, are now similarly disapplied in relation to the carcases of animals slaughtered in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 12A of Part I of Schedule 2 to the Diseases of Animals (Northern Ireland) Order 1981 as animals exposed to the infection of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (Article 3).
The Order also makes a minor technical amendment to Article 4 of the principal Order in respect of the possession of mammalian meat and bone meal, any product thereof or anything containing mammalian meat and bone meal (Article 4).
