Very few people fully understand the laws governing the trade.
Many are unaware that certain rules even exist. The odd person may mention something about a licence but of the technicalities, they are completely ignorant. It is more surprising, although in a way understandable, when the questions come from members of the enforcement agencies, or a confused Solicitor.
Those in the trade itself such as taxidermists, are more often than not at a complete loss. Navigating their way around numerous Acts of Parliament, Regulations, Statutory Instruments and the like is not why they became taxidermists, they simply want to get on with the job they love. The great majority however wish to abide by the laws but would rather leave the legal side to someone who can tell them in simple layman's terms what is necessary. Members of The Guild of Taxidermists have been able to take advantage of this service for years but not everybody is a member.
