EU rules force eAML2 change

New EU rules on country of origin labelling mean eAML2 (the electronic pig movement service) will have to change to accommodate the amendments.

The rules will apply to all producers sending pigs to slaughter and the changes mean the origin of the pigs will have to be declared.

BPEX head of technical Andrew Knowles said: “This is not a major change but does mean producers will have to answer some extra questions to comply with the EU rules.

“This change will come into effect on 25th May so producers, livestock markets and processors need to be aware that it is coming. This new information will be passed to the destination abattoir or farmer so they are aware of the origin of the pigs in the consignment.”
