Defra have launched a consultation on proposed registration requirements for all bird keepers in Great Britain.

The proposed changes will amend the current poultry registration requirements for keepers with 50 and more poultry and extend this to all bird keepers. It takes forward the recommendation from the 2018 Dame Glenys Stacey Review that was conducted for England and lessons identified from the 2021/2022 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N1 (also known as bird flu) outbreak and previous HPAI outbreaks.

Whilst animal health policy is a devolved matter, the UK government, the Scottish government, and the Welsh government have agreed to work together to ensure adequate information on all bird premises is captured across Great Britain. The specific amendments proposed in this consultation will have effect only in Great Britain (England, Scotland, and Wales).

Responses will be used to help refine proposals and inform policy decisions on how the UK government, Scottish Government and Welsh Government proceed with any subsequent legislative change.

The consultation can be found here and responses must be submitted by 31st May 2023
