The requirements for routine testing of cattle for bovine TB are set out in EU directive 64/432/EEC. The Directive requires Member States to provide plans showing how they will eradicate bovine TB in cattle.

The Animal Health Act 1981 confers powers relating to the testing and slaughter of animals.

Tuberculosis (Wales) Order 2011 puts the prevention and management of incidents of bovine TB in camelids, goats and deer on a similar footing to the arrangements in place for cattle

Tuberculosis (Wales) Order 2010 confers powers relating to the prevention of the spread of bovine TB in cattle.
