Different movements require different people to report the movement:
Farm to Farm Movements (out with your main business)
- Alternatively, movements can be reported by an agent or agents acting on behalf of the consigning or receiving keeper
Scottish Live Auction Sales - 4 Way Movement Reporting System
All Scottish markets report the following movements, including the "OFF farm" and the "ON" movements on your behalf. Markets will however, only report movements to a keepers main CPH number. Any movement thereafter that you want to make within your 'business' you can make using the ScotMoves system. You can also contact the ScotEID office for advice.
Markets therefore report the following:
- OFF-movement from consigning keeper's main CPH
- ON-movement to market
- OFF-movement from market
- ON movement to receiving keeper's main CPH
Direct to Slaughter - Farm to Abattoir
Scottish Abattoirs report electronically both the 'off farm movement' and the 'on abattoir movement' on behalf of Scottish cattle keepers. You should check that your abattoir is reporting movements for you. If they are not you must report the off-movement using CTS Online, telephony, e-mail (SIS) or by sending a movement card to BCMS. The abattoir is still responsible for reporting the on-movement.
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.
