Transport of Animals and Poultry (Cleansing and Disinfection) Order (Northern Ireland) 2000 (S.R. No. 293 of 2001).

Type of law

The Order specifies that, after the transport of any hoofed animals, and domestic fowls, turkeys, geese, ducks, guinea-fowls, quails, pigeons, pheasants, partridges and ratites, the means of transport and associated equipment must be cleansed and disinfected in accordance with Schedule 1 before it is used again to transport any such animals. It also prescribes, even if this has been done, the means of transport must be cleansed and disinfected again before such animals are transported if the means of transport has become soiled so as to cause a risk of transmission of disease. Following a journey, it requires a means of transport to be cleansed and disinfected as soon as reasonably practicable, but in any event within not more than 24 hours. The Order requires any person transporting such animals to remove dead animals, litter and excreta from the means of transport as soon as possible.
