The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment(1), being the Department concerned(2), makes the following Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972(3) (“the 1972 Act”) and Articles 17(1), (2), (3) and (5), 40(2) and (4) and 55(2) of, and paragraphs 1(1), (4) and (5), 3(1), 12(1), 14(1) and 15 of Schedule 3 to the Health and Safety at Work (Northern Ireland) Order 1978(4) (“the 1978 Order”).

The Department was designated(5) for the purposes of section 2(2) of the 1972 Act in relation to the notification and control of substances and to measures relating to biocides.

The Regulations give effect without modifications to proposals submitted to it by the Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland under Article 13(1A) of the 1978 Order(6) after the Executive had carried out consultations in accordance with Article 46(3)(7) of the 1978 Order.

These Regulations make provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) of the 1972 Act and it appears to the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment that it is expedient for references in the Biocidal Products Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2001(8) to Directive 98/8/EC of the European Parliament and the Council(9), Commission Regulation (EC) No. 1896/2000(10) and Commission Regulation (EC) No. 2032/2003(11) to be construed as references to those instruments as amended from time to time.
