- Permit or other obligation
- 5 municipalities
- Public service
Feeding with carrion requires registration of the carrion feeding site.
Feeding with carrion means setting food at a site to attract animals. The purpose of feeding with carrion is to make photographing, viewing or hunting easier. Carrion feeding sites can also be used for only feeding purposes.
The Finnish Food Authority is responsible for the register’s operation.
Register in the carrion site register before starting carrion activities. In the environmental health care area of Rovakaari, the registration is made by a veterinary inspector.
Do the following
Submit the notification of the location of the carrion feeding site in the e-service of the animal keeper and location register. Alternatively, you can submit it to your municipal veterinarian, who will register the carrion site in the register of carrion feeding sites in connection to the animal keeper and location register.
Please note that each carrion feeding site must be registered separately.
Submit a notification to the veterinary inspector, either in the online service of the Finnish Food Authority's register of animal keepers and premises or using the Finnish Food Authority's carrion feeding site registration/change notification form.
By logging in to the Finnish Food Authority's e-service, you can notify the carrion feeding sites. You can also check your own information in the service. Logging in requires electronic identification (e.g. online banking codes). Your notification will be sent to the veterinary inspector through the e-service.
You can submit the notification form to the veterinary inspector, in the Rovakaari environmental health care area, by sending it by post or by bringing it to the office. You can also send the notification by email to valvontaelainlaakarit[at]rovaniemi.fi.
Also notify the veterinary inspector of any changes or discontinuation of activities, within 30 days, using the Finnish Food Authority's online service, or using the registration/change notification form for a carrion feeding site.
For more information, contact your veterinary inspector, the customer service telephone for environmental health care, visit the office, or send an e-mail to valvontaelainlaakarit[at]rovaniemi.fi.
To whom and on what terms
The registration can be made if the carrion keeper has filled in all the necessary information in the e-service of the register of animal keepers and locations.
The carrion keeper must report any changes related to the carrion feeding site within 30 days in the e-service of the animal keeper and location register. Alternatively, you can use the form to submit it to the municipal veterinarian.
The carrion keeper must also notify the municipal veterinarian monthly of the by-products taken to the carrion feeding site and their amount.
If the operator is established in another EEA state and provides services in Finland on a temporary basis, they are required to have the same registration as the operators established in Finland.
