Premises that receive, handle, use, treat or destroy animal products must be approved under the Animal By-Products (Enforcement) (Wales) Regulations 2014.

  • revoke the Animal By-Products (Identification) Regulations 1995
  • revoke and remake the Animal By-Products (Enforcement) (Wales) (No.2) Regulations 2011
  • include the Animal By-Products (Identification) Regulations
  • continue to enforce Commission Regulation (EU) No.142/2011 and implementing Regulation (EC) No.1069/2009.


Several types of activity need to be registered – including the work of ABP hauliers and pet cemeteries. If you need to be registered or require further information on the registration process, please contact your local Animal and Plant Health Agency Regional Office.
