Different movements require different people to report the movement:
Farm to Farm Movements
- Alternatively, movements can be reported by an agent or agents acting on behalf of the consigning or receiving keeper
Direct to Slaughter - Farm to Abattoir
We have asked all Scottish Abattoirs to report electronically both the off-movement from the farm and the on-movement to the abattoir onbehalf of keepers. One or two are still changing to the electronic reporting system and you should check that your abattoir is reporting movements for you. If they are not you must report the off-movement using CTS Online, e-mail (SIS) or by sending a movement card to BCMS. The abattoir is still responsible for reporting the on-movement.
Scottish Live Auction Sales - Farm to Market and Market to Farm
We have asked all Scottish markets to report the following movements, including the "off" and "on" movements on your behalf:
- off-movement from consigning keeper's farm
- On-movement to market
- Off-movement from market
- on movement to receiving keeper's farm
Please do not duplicate the reporting of these movements to BCMS
On Farm Auction / Video Sales / Sales Other Than At Live Auction Sales
You must make sure that all movements are notified to BCMS. This can be carried out by an agent or agents acting on behalf of the consigning or receiving keepers but if not, the keepers involved must notify movements using CTS Online, email (SIS) or by sending movement cards.
Agricultural Shows - Farm to Showground to Farm
Show secretaries are responsible for reporting movements "on" and "off" the show ground. Some secretries have agreed to also report the "off" farm and "on" farm movements. You need to check and, if this is not being done, you must notify BCMS of each "off" and "on" farm movement using CTS Online or by sending a movement document.
