Abstract
This Order revokes and replaces the Transport of Animals (Cleansing and Disinfection) (Wales) (No. 2) Order 2003 (S.I. 2003/1470 (W.172)). It changes the provisions of that Order as follows: it provides specific cleansing and disinfection requirements for the transport of horses (art. 5); it makes special provision where a means of transport leaves a slaughterhouse or sales premises (art. 8); and it provides for the cleansing and disinfection of the wheels, mudguards and wheel arches of a means of transport (paragraph 2(3) of Schedule 2). The Order provides for the cleansing and disinfection (in accordance with Schedule 2) of means of transport before and after carrying specified animals (art.s 3, 4 and 5, and Schedule 1). It provides that drivers' cabs are not required to be disinfected (art. 6). Article 7 specifies how the material removed from the means of transport must be disposed of after cleansing. Article 8 requires drivers to give written declarations specifying where cleansing and disinfection will take place when means of transport (not carrying animals) leave slaughterhouses or sales premises. Under article 9, an inspector is empowered, in the circumstances set out in that article, to serve a notice requiring a means of transport to be cleansed and disinfected.
