New Animal By-Products Regulations agreed in Brussels

New European Union rules on Animal By-Products Regulations, which govern the disposal of catering and food waste, have been agreed in Brussels (14 November).

The regulation lays down health rules in relation to animal by-products not intended for human consumption. According to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the new regulation introduces a more risk-proportionate approach to controls on animal by-products and clarifies the rules, including their interaction with other EU legislation.

The regulation will come into force in the UK from February 2011 to give time for detailed rules to be agreed under implementing legislation. The full article can be read here
