Control of Pollution (Silage, Slurry and Agricultural Fuel Oil) (Scotland) Regulations (S.S.I. No. 531 of 2003).
Type of law
The Regulations, as the 2001 Regulations, require persons with custody or control of a crop being made into silage, of livestock slurry or of certain fuel oil to carry out works and take precautions and other steps for preventing pollution of inland or coastal waters. The principal change from the 2001 Regulations is to allow equivalent European standards to be applied where conformity to a British Standard or Code of Practice published by the British Standards Institute is required by these Regulations.
