Scottish ministers consulted Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) before determining the Central Science Laboratory’s application for an experimental permit. SNH separately granted a licence to the Laboratory to interfere with badger setts in order to take measures to protect badgers from coming into contact with T3327 during the trial period.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency was not notified. Advice on the possible environmental effects of the trial was given to Scottish ministers by the Scottish Agricultural Science Agency.
