One if the most popular question we are getting asked is will I need a visit from a veterinarian before racing. The answer to this is that following registration with DEFRA you will need to register with a veterinary practice before you can race. However, a visit from the veterinarian does not have to have been completed prior to racing but will have to have been completed within a period that DEFRA/APHA will confirm in their communication on the 24th May. Another question is what information will I need to register with DEFRA. For this we understand you will need just basic information such as name address and other contact details. You will not for example, be required to submit a ring list. All other information including what will the veterinarian be looking for when visiting will be clarified in DEFRAs publication but as an indication this MAY include notifiable diseases such as Paramyxo.

At today's meeting (10/05/2022) with DEFRA and representatives from the devolved Governments we were informed that; 1. That the registration process for England, Scotland and Wales will go live at 10am on 24th May 2022 2. Due to the possible high level of demand on registration in England there could be a period of up to 6 week before all lofts are registered. 3. The Export Health Certificate along with all guidance notes will be published on 24th May 2022 DEFRA has indicated that following the registration process going live we will be kept updated of the amount of applications for registration and how many lofts they have registered. This will then give us a clearer picture of how long it will be until all lofts are registered. Website links and information on how to register will be published on the RPRA website at 10am on 24th May 2022 There will be more detailed information published over the next two weeks. Ian Evans CEO

 

Due to the above, the NFC first race will be from Guernsey.

Subject: Channel Racing - Loft Registration

Further to my statement issued yesterday, I wish to clarify that only lofts that wish to take part in channel racing are required to register with DEFRA. If you do not intend to race across the channel this year please do not try to register as this will adversely impact on those that wish to do so. In addition, if you do not intend to race old birds from the channel please leave it until 6 weeks after the launch of the registration process to try and register. Ian Evans CEO
