3.1 About this report
This report summarises the responses received to the recent consultation on proposals to introduce legislative changes on bovine TB to areas such as TB diagnostic testing, cattle movements, isolation requirements and compensation for unclean cattle.
3.2 Background to consultation
In 2009 Scotland achieved Officially Tuberculosis Free (OTF) status in recognition of the low and stable incidence of TB found in Scottish herds. The Scottish Government is committed to a comprehensive, practical and proportionate programme of actions in order to maintain Scotland's current low levels of TB and safeguard our officially TB free status.
The current Tuberculosis (Scotland) Order came into force in 2007 and has been
amended a number of times since, most recently to make amendments arising from
the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the EU. The proposal includes a consolidation of all of the bovine tuberculosis legislation in one updated TB Order.
