Art. 37 Elimination by the Township the Township is responsible for the disposal of animal by-products which have not been produced in the production or processing of products of animal origin carried as a professional activity; bits of food are not affected.
When bits of food are mixed with green waste, the canton is responsible for the elimination, if these remains are collected as waste referred to in art. 31b of the Act of 7 October 1983 on the protection of the environment the cantons that do not operate their own factory or disposal facility must ensure the elimination of animal by-products which they are responsible by the way of an agreement with a company of elimination.

Art. 38 cantonal infrastructure each canton shall: a. that infrastructure for the collection and storage of animal by-products is available; b. to that landfill of dead animals are provided.

The cantons are collaborating on the implementation of the transport infrastructure. They must have a minimum of the transport vehicles and containers to transport of contaminated animals dead. It takes a transport capacity of one ton per 8000 units of cattle.

Art. 39 warranty disposal in Switzerland anyone who exports animal by-products should be able to eliminate them in Switzerland, in a factory or facility allowed for the elimination of animal by-products of category, to the case where the country of destination to restrict or to prohibit importation. The international conventions on the elimination of cross-border are reserved.
Proof that animal by-products can be eliminated in Switzerland in case of import restrictions will be provided in the form of a written guarantee of support. This warranty may be issued that if and as long as the plant or installation has unused capacity of elimination. To calculate the latter, it should be subtracted from processing capacity set out in the operating permit the total quantity actually eliminated during the year.
A guarantee of support is not necessary if the exported animal by-products are skins, scraps of food or products within the meaning of art. 7, let. d, or derivatives that can be stored at room temperature, or if the total quantity exported is less than 1000 kg per year.
The quantities of animal by-products exported must be reported monthly to the FSVO.
For the rest, the export of animal by-products is governed by arts. 25 and 32 of the Ordinance of 18 April 2007 on the import, transit and export of animals and animal products.

RS 916.443.10 art. 40 supported the holder of animal by-products disposal costs support the disposal costs.
The canton invoice holders of animal by-products, in proportion, disposal costs to pay.
It can give up to entirely pass its disposal costs when it is in the general interest, or that it would result in the disproportionate administrative burden.
The cantons regulate the financial participation of municipalities in the elimination.
Differing cantonal regulations are reserved.

Art. 41 compensation for elimination by the cantons cantons companies reimburse companies to eliminate the actual disposal costs of animal by-products eliminated by these companies at the request of the cantons insofar as these costs are not covered by receipts of valorization of animal by-products.
The reimbursements are allowed only insofar as they are essential for the maintenance of a company whose elimination capabilities are necessary for the tasks of disposal of animal by-products in the canton. Thus subsidized disposal businesses cannot eliminate animal by-products from slaughterhouses or other establishments in the food sector to better account than firms that receive no public support.
The disposal company must: a. report annually to the canton a condition of the operating expenses and in receipts from the valorization of animal by-products; b. enter and record the quantities and the origin of animal by-products eliminated and provide these data to the canton all years; c. communicate annually the respective share of the disposal costs of animal by-products billed to the cantons and private providers.

Chapter 6 measures in case of epizootic art. 42 principle it is forbidden to leave the animal by-products of the regions or the farm restrictions due to an outbreak of highly contagious epizootics police. In this case, it is also forbidden to use as feed for animals or items to chew for animals and in the manufacture of technical products. The art. 43 and 44 are reserved.

Art. 43 measures ordered by the cantonal veterinarian in case of an outbreak, the cantonal veterinarian decides how the animal by-products will be eliminated, in particular: a. in what factories or facilities the dead animals will be eliminated, if several plants or facilities are taken into account; (b) what special precautionary measures should be taken.

If the elimination of animal by-products of category 1 and 2 in the factories or facilities for this purpose is no longer possible due to the outbreak of an epizootic disease or unusual circumstances, the cantonal veterinary may authorize the elimination in a factory or an authorised facility to remove by-products of category 3. If this plant or facility eliminates again exclusively animal by-products of category 3, it must request a new authorization of exploitation referred to in art. 12 art. 44 measures ordered by the FSVO in case of highly contagious epidemic, the FSVO may order: a. the elimination of all animal by-products within the area affected by the epidemic or elimination of animal by-products contaminated from several areas affected in a single plant or installation; (b) a company that is committed to canton to eliminate ABPS to modify its activity or coordinate with other companies so that the ability total elimination is available. The cantons compensate the company for any additional costs or shortages to win.

Chapter 7 enforcement art. 45 run the cantons perform this order.

Art. 46 cantons official controls monitor the disposal of animal by-products. They inspect plants or facilities at least once a year and the other establishments authorized or registered periodically, depending on the type and the extent of their activity.
Control of the production and the placing on the market of animal feed is governed, in addition, by order of 26 May 1999 on animal feed.
