  6. Taken from rpra not looking good for racing from France As previously published the EU has agreed to extend the transitional period for the new Animal Health Regulations until October 2021. This news was taken as a positive step towards achieving Channel racing with the understanding that we would be able to move pigeons into the EU on the same basis as we have for decades. However, during the transitional period, EU member states are permitted to apply their own national rules and this is where we currently have an issue. The French position is that an Animal Health certificate remains a requirement. The requirements of the Health certificate include but are not limited to: 1. The loft being under the surveillance of an approved Veterinarian who would sign the Health Certificate that in turn requires points 2 and 3 below. 2. Prior to movement the pigeons could not take part in any races for a period of 30 days prior to being moved into France 3. The pigeons/ each Loft would have to supply evidence of a negative test for Paramyxo and Newcastle Disease carried out by an approved laboratory at least 7 days in advance being transported. What is being done? Discussions are ongoing. The RPRA is working with the appropriate UK Authorities, APPG, a supportive French Senator, the FCF and FCI to lobby the French Authorities. These discussions are based on the low risk pigeons pose to the spread of the two diseases at the centre of the health certification requirements; Newcastle disease and Avian Influenza. The aim is to remove the requirements of the Health certificate and proceed on the same basis as we have for decades. As a contingency we are also exploring the rules associated with moving pigeons into Belgium, Holland and Germany. It may prove possible to move pigeons into these countries without the Health Certificate. If this proved positive we would at least provide an opportunity for cross channel racing from these Countries. Why hasn't the RPRA previously explored the possibility of Racing from other European Countries ? Because until the EU applied the transitional period mentioned above such actions would not have been possible. Next Update We will provide the next update as soon as we have any information or by next Friday at the latest. Ian Evans CEO

  11. DEFRA PRESS RELEASE: NEW HOUSING MEASURES WILL COME INTO FORCE IN ENGLAND, SCOTLAND AND WALES ON 14 DECEMBER. [1] New housing measures, which will come into force on 14 December, mean that it will be a legal requirement for all bird keepers to keep their birds indoors and to follow strict biosecurity measures in order to limit the spread of and eradicate the disease. These housing measures build on the strengthened biosecurity measures that were brought in as part of the Avian Influenza Protection Zone (AIPZ) on 11 November. ……………………………………… The Avian Influenza Prevention Zone currently in place means it is a legal requirement for all bird keepers in GB (whether they are keeping pet birds, commercial flocks or just a few birds in a backyard flock) to follow strict biosecurity measures. All bird keepers must: * maintain the highest standards of biosecurity to prevent the introduction of disease * report any clinical signs indicative of avian influenza to the Defra Rural Services Helpline on 03000 200 301. In Wales, contact 0300 303 8268. In Scotland, contact their local Field Services Office [2]. Failure to do so is an offence. All keepers can find the latest information on gov.uk at the following links: * Gov.uk biosecurity: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/avian-influ ... ity-advice [3] * Declaration - Avian Influenza Prevention Zone https://assets.publishing.service.gov.u ... 201111.pdf [4] * Avian influenza Prevention Zone self-assessment checklist https://assets.publishing.service.gov.u ... cklist.pdf [5] KEVIN BEATTIE Policy Advisor - Notifiable Avian Diseases Exotic Disease Control Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Taken from another site
