Defra issues reminder on new EU Animal Health Regulation Please note that the information in this page has been issued by Defra, not the Government Chemist, and it is published to increase dissemination amongst Government Chemist stakeholders.New Animal Health Regulation and composite rules apply from 21 April 2021Defra has issued a reminder that new EU Animal Health Regulation (AHR) and composite rules will apply from 21 April 2021.Five new Export Health Certificates (EHCs) and one private attestation can be used for exports of specific products of animal origin to the EU. This includes two new composite product EHCs and the private attestation document for products exempt from certification. The ECHs are on EHC online and the private attestation on form finder.The remaining new EHCs for live animals, germinal products and products of animal origin will be phased in over the coming months.If your composite product already requires an EHC, you will be able to carry on using the current EHC until August or choose to use the new documentation.If your product does not currently require an EHC, you must follow the new rules from today (21 April).For live animals, germinal products and other products of animal origin you will be able to continue using existing EHCs until August 2021.Heat treatmentThe European Commission has confirmed it is amending the AHR to allow businesses to use a private attestation to export shelf-stable composite products containing dairy (but no meat) that has not undergone UHT or sterilisation, so long as the dairy product originates and is processed in a third country listed for the export of dairy to the EU, such as GB. As the legislative amendments will not be in place by 21 April 2021 when the new Regulation applies the Commission has agreed an interim arrangement.

Alex Newell, Eden Espinosa & Jessica Vosk(Photos: Emilio Madrid for Broadway.com | Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images | Michael Hull) View Comments Powerhouse stage stars Alex Newell, Eden Espinosa and Jessica Vosk have been selected to team up in the role of the Narrator in Manhattan Concert Productions’ upcoming one-night presentation of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Michael Arden is at the helm of the previously announced concert, which will star Noah Galvin as Joseph, scheduled to take place at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall on February 17, 2020 at 8:00pm.Newell, who made his Broadway debut in Once on This Island, appeared in Manhattan Concert Productions’ 2018 concert production of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Espinosa is known for her stage turns in Wicked, Falsettos, Brooklyn and Lempicka. Vosk, also a veteran of Wicked, recently concluded a turn in the world premiere musical Becoming Nancy at the Alliance Theatre.Marking the 50th anniversary of the 1970 amateur stage productions that gave Joseph its first life, the concert will feature a chorus of more than 200 singers from across the United States, a star-studded cast and the New York City Chamber Orchestra.Told entirely through song with the help of a Narrator (played by Newell, Espinosa and Vosk), the musical follows the story of Jacob’s favorite son, Joseph (Galvin), and his eleven brothers. After being sold into slavery by the brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the advances of Potiphar’s wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled showman, the Pharaoh. As Joseph strives to resolve Egypt’s famine, he becomes Pharaoh’s right-hand man and eventually reunites with his family.Featuring music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, the show features songs that have gone on to become pop and musical-theater standards, including “Any Dream Will Do,” “Close Every Door to Me,” “Jacob and Sons,” “There’s One More Angel in Heaven” and “Go Go Go Joseph.”Additional casting for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will be announced at a later date.
