The Secretary of State is a Minister designated for the purpose of section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972(1) (“the 1972 Act”) in relation to the regulation and control of classification, packaging and labelling of dangerous substances and preparations(2), and for measures relating to consumer protection(3).

The Secretary of State makes these Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred upon him by section 2(2) of the 1972 Act and Articles 17(1), (2), (3), (4), (6)(b), and 55(2) of, and paragraphs 1 (1), (4), and (5), 2(2), 14(1) and 15 of Schedule 3 to, the Health and Safety at Work (Northern Ireland) Order 1978(4) as applied and modified by Article 53 of that Order.

In accordance with Article 46(1)(b) of that Order he has consulted with the Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland and such other bodies as appear to him to be appropriate.

The Regulations make provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) of the 1972 Act and it appears to the Secretary of State that it is expedient for references in these Regulations to:

(i)

the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 2008(5) on the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures, amending and repealing Directives 67/548/EEC(6) and 1999/45/EC(7) and amending Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006(8) be construed as including references to articles 6(5), 11(3), 12, 14, 18(3)(b), 23, 25 to 29, 35(2) second and third sub-paragraph and Annexes I to VII of that Regulation as amended from time to time; and

(ii)

the Regulation (EC) No 689/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 June 2008 concerning the export and import of dangerous chemicals(9) be construed as including references to Annexes I and V of that Regulation as those Annexes are amended from time to time.
