Policy Area:                Disease control - Brucellosis

Regulation Name             Regulation Description
Brucellosis Control Order   This Order is made under the Diseases of Animals (NI) Order 1981 and revokes
(Northern Ireland) 2004     and re-enacts with amendments the Brucellosis Control Order (NI) 1972 (as
[S.R. 2004 No. 361]         amended). Articles 3(1) & 5 implement Article 8 of, and paragraph I(d) of Annex
                            AII to, Council Directive 64/432/EEC on health problems affecting intra-
                            Community trade in bovine animals and swine as last amended by Council
                            Regulation (EC) No. 21/2004.
                            The Order requires the keeper of any animal suspected of, or affected with,
                            brucellosis to notify a DVO (Article 3(1)). It specifies those to be informed by
                            DARD where it knows or suspects that an animal may be diseased (Art 3(2)). It
                            requires keepers or veterinary surgeons to notify the DVO of abortions (Art 4).
                            An animal may not be moved into or out of any herd, except directly to a
                            slaughterhouse, unless it has been subjected to an official test during the 30
                            days prior to the date of movement (Art 5). DARD may examine an animal, take
                            samples and apply tests (Art 6) and may require a keeper to detain an animal on
                            the holding and have it subjected to an official test at his own expense (Art 7).
                            DARD may impose specific restrictions on herd keepers and may declare the
                            establishment of a temporary control area (Art 8 & 9). The keeper must take
                            precautions to prevent the spread of disease to animals on adjoining land (Art
                            10). DARD may prohibit the use of certain land for grazing (Art 11). Milk or dairy
                            by-products for feeding to livestock may not be brought

                            onto a holding unless certain conditions are fulfilled (Art 12). DARD may specify
                            cleansing and disinfection on a holding and of vehicles (Articles 13 & 14).The
                            Order provides powers of slaughter, regulates valuation and compensation and
                            makes provision for appeals (Art 15 to 17). DARD may seize, detain and dispose
                            of an affected or suspected animal and recover its expenses from the owner (Art
                            18). The keeper and persons engaged in the purchase, sale, collection,
                            transport or delivery of animals must provide certain information to an inspector
                            on demand (Art 19). Except under licence, a keeper must not hold a sale of his
                            animals (Article 20). Provision is made for the issue and production of licences,
                            notices, approvals and authorisations under this Order or the Scheme Order and
                            action by an inspector if a person fails to comply with any requirement imposed
                            on him (Art 21 to 23).

Brucellosis (Examination    This Order contains a Scheme for the examination and testing of bovine animals
and Testing) Scheme         which, in conjunction with the Brucellosis Control Order (NI) 2004, is designed to
Order (Northern Ireland)    keep bovine animals free from brucellosis and to control and reduce the
2004 [S.R. 2004 No. 364]    incidence of that disease. The Scheme – (a) enables DARD to carry out an
                            examination or official test for brucellosis on any animal (para 2(1)); (b) makes
                            provision for any sample taken from an animal to be submitted to an approved
                            laboratory, the tests to be applied and the notification of the results to DARD and
                            the keeper (para 2(2) and (3)); (c) provides powers of entry for authorised officer
                            (para 3); (d) prohibits the movement of an animal while it is undergoing an official
                            test (para 4); (e) prohibits any act whereby the result of an official test is
                            intended to be affected (para 5); (f) prohibits the sampling, testing, treatment or
                            vaccination of an animal (para 6); (g) prescribes the requirements which may be
                            imposed on the purchaser of milk for resale as milk or milk products (para 7); (h)
                            enables an inspector to carry out any requirements imposed on a person under

                            the Scheme where that person fails to comply with those requirements (para 8

Total Hours                329,035




Note 1. For all BR testing time estimates an average of 6 minutes per animal has been used. This equates
to the average time taken by an Animal Health & Welfare Inspector (AHWI) to test a single animal. This
includes set up time, performance of the test, packaging of the sample and completion of paperwork. The 6
minutes has been calculated as follows: Total hours per annum spent by AHWIs on-farm at herd level and
individual animal tests divided by the total number of animals tested. Source: DARD Veterinary Service
Operational Management Unit


Note 2. The estimates reflect the level of synchronisation of the BR herd level test (routine and risk) with
the TB herd level test ( 79.7% overall / 83.8% during the housed period / 57.8% during the grazing period).
However, it should be noted that the opportunity for synchronisation of BR risk and restricted herd tests is
limited given that these types of test are disease driven and repeated at short intervals. The level of
synchronisation of BR routine herd tests with TB herd level tests is possibly the more relevant statistic
(80.7% overall / 81.8% during the housed period / 76.4% during the grazing period).
