Animal By-Products

The Animal By-products Regulations establish requirements for the handling and storage of raw hides and skins, for the approval of premises and for the disposal of unprocessed waste.

For details visit: General Guide to the Regulations

Under these regulations, premises tanning raw hides and skins are classed as "technical plants" and are subject to the conditions described in brief, here. This guidance explicitly excludes material that has been limed, pickled and or tanned from the scope of the regulations.
