star this property answer text <p>The current six-day standstill rule for livestock movements balances the risk of disease transmission against the industry’s need to trade livestock. It was introduced in 2003 following the Foot and Mouth disease outbreak in 2001. Its purpose is to reduce the spread of undetected disease such as was seen in 2001, reducing the scope and cost of an outbreak.</p><p> </p><p>After extensive modelling, the standstill period was set at six days to take into account the weekly cycle of market sales. The standstill rule includes a range of exemptions that support the regime, including for movements through market.</p><p> </p><p>The Farming Regulation Task Force reviewed standstill in 2011 and recommended the relaxation of standstill rules for movements between farms and where keepers were able to establish approved separation units. There was no consensus amongst industry regarding the right approach, particularly due to concerns around the potential distortion of trade resulting from maintaining standstill for markets and the cost and effectiveness of separation units.</p><p> </p><p>Government is committed to a further review of standstill in 2018, following the implementation of another Farming Regulation Task Force recommendation to simplify the way livestock holdings are defined for recording and reporting purposes which will impact on the number of standstills that need to be complied with.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Government applies a risk-based approach to standstill rules. All livestock present in the red market go directly to slaughter and are slaughtered within 48 hours of their arrival to an abattoir. There is a negligible risk that any undetected disease in these animals may spread to other livestock holdings. Ante and post mortem checks are carried out in abattoirs to ensure that animals that are slaughtered are fit to enter the food chain. In contrast, livestock auctioned in a green market may move to other livestock holdings, spreading any undetected disease that these animals may be incubating. In consequence, livestock moving onto a green market have to comply with the six-day standstill rule to mitigate this risk. This and other factors will be part of Government’s review of standstill in 2018.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There are already two national derogations in Regulation (EC) 561/2006 relating to drivers’ hours rules, which may apply to lorries carrying livestock. One applies to lorries carrying livestock (or other goods) as part of an agricultural business’s own entrepreneurial activity within a 100km radius. A second applies to lorries carrying live animals between a farm and a market or from a market to a slaughterhouse within a 100km radius. Both of these derogations have been taken up in full in domestic UK legislation, and there are no plans to seek a further derogation.</p> more like this
