Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations, which extend to Great Britain, come into force on 15th August 1995.
The Regulations revoke in their entirety the Bovine Offal (Prohibition) Regulations 1989 (S.I. 1989/2061) (as amended) and the Bovine Offal (Prohibition) (Scotland) Regulations 1990 (S.I. 1990/112) (as amended), which control specified bovine offal (regulation 2 and Schedule). Specified bovine offal is now controlled by the Specified Bovine Offal Order 1995, which comes into force on the same day as these Regulations (“the SBO Order”).
The Regulations also make some consequential revocations (regulation 2 and Schedule).
The Regulations also amend the Animal By-Products (Identification) Regulations 1995 (S.I. 1995/614), which cross-refer to the definition of specified bovine offal contained in the Bovine Offal (Prohibition) Regulations 1989, by inserting a new definition of specified bovine offal identical to that in the SBO Order (regulation 3).
