The historic flock derogation ends on 1 January 2015.
From this date, any movements of animals first identified before 2010 will need to be individually reported on the movement document in the same way as all other sheep over the age of 12 months.
The NFU lobbied to get the original derogation extended to this date, saving the industry £11.5 million.
