Proposals to stop BSE testing of healthy slaughtered cattle in England and Wales from 01 January 2013 (Defra) - TSI response - November 2012

TSI response (PDF 117KB). TSI agrees with the proposed change provided it is based upon sound scientific evidence and opinion provided by the European Food Safety Authority and provided certain safeguards are put in place. This is an EU-wide initiative and TSI is aware that the date of 01 January 2013 has been delayed by at least two months due to the need for scrutiny by the European Parliament.
