"Following the advice of the Standing Veterinary Committee of 28 March 2001, the Commission decided on 2 April 2001 to further clarify the rules restricting the movement of live animals in all Member States other than the UK. Essentially, the general rule remains that movements are only possible from a holding to a slaughterhouse or to another holding. In both cases, movements have to be authorised by the competent authorities of the place of departure and of destination. Additional safeguards to ensure that any transports that take place do not allow animals to come into contact with animals from other holdings except for direct slaughter and that vehicles are cleaned and disinfected also remain.

Clarifications concern:

  • in case of trade of live animals, notification of authorities of destination by the authorities of dispatch has to be given at least 24 hours before the transport takes place;

  • in case live animals are brought from farm to farm, or from farm to slaughterhouse via an assembly centre, the animals must have resided in the holding of dispatch for at least the previous 30 days, and no movements of susceptible animals must have taken place into the holding of dispatch within the previous 30 days; animals brought directly from a farm to a slaughterhouse need not fulfil this requirement."
