Inspection of meat stores : modification of document FCA BC-10

Following the detection of a classic BSE case on a bovine animal born in 2011 in the French Ardennes, France has lost its OIE status of countries with a negligible BSE risk and returns to its previous status (= member state with a controlled risk status). This means that the list of tissues considered as SRM for bovine animals born and / or slaughtered in France has been adapted (= long list).


This information is very important and should be taken into account during the inspections of Category 3 material, intended for animal feed. Those inspections are carried out, in meat stores, by inspection bodies, approved by OVOCOM in accordance with procedures described in FCA documents ‘BC-10 – Meat stores producing Category 3 material – technical prescriptions’ and ‘CC-03 – Inspection Regulation for meat stores’.


Only FCA document ‘BC-10 - Meat stores producing Category 3 material – technical prescriptions’ has been modified, integrating the new status for France.


The changes in this document are highlighted in grey. The FCA document is also available in a version where the changes are not visible.
