The Chief Veterinary Officer (CVO) for Wales has written to slaughterhouse operators to advise them that the Mandatory Use of Closed-Circuit Television in Slaughterhouses (Wales) Regulations 2024 (“the Regulations”) have been laid. The CVO will write with a further update following the plenary debate on the Regulations, which is scheduled for 23 April. We are developing guidance to help slaughterhouse operators to comply with the Regulations. The guidance will be sent to slaughterhouse operators and published online.
