FSA to discuss transition of BSE rules

UK - The UK’s food standards agency will meet next week to discuss a new BSE testing system trialled earlier this year as part of a managed transition towards replacing the Over Thirty Months Rule. This rule, which was set up in 1996, automatically bans older cattle from entering the food chain. The principal food safety measure – the Specified Risk Material (SRM) controls, which removes over 99 per cent of any infectivity in cattle – will remain in place, along with the Feed Ban control.
