The Trade in Animals and Related Products Regulations (TARP) 2011

The TARP regulations were introduced in 2011 with the aim of consolidating and simplifying five sets of Animal Product regulations. TARP regulations outline how veterinary checks and the Balai directives are implemented in England and Wales. The completed document can be viewed here.

In summary the document covers:
  • Movement of animals and genetic material between Member States;
  • Importation of animals and gentic material from a Third Country;
  • Safeguard measures: banning or restricting imports of any animal or animal product from a country , if there are reasonable grounds for suspicion of a serious threat to human or animal health;
  • Administration, including notifications and authorisation, fees, penalties and offences.

TARP Guidance notes, which further detail the regulations applicable to the UK, can be viewed here.
