The proposed new regulations include amendments affecting TSE testing, the seizure of milk where TSEs are suspected or confirmed in sheep and goats, and changes to the compensation system, and would update the existing Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (England) Regulations 2008, which would be revoked.
