Statutory Rules of Northern Ireland
24th April 2012
Coming into operation
23rd May 2012
The Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety(1) makes the following Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by Articles 15(1)(a), (c) and (f), 16(1) and (2) and 47(2) of the Food Safety (Northern Ireland) Order 1991(2) as read with paragraph 1A of Schedule 2 to the European Communities Act 1972(3).
These Regulations make provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972 and it appears to the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety that it is expedient for references to an Annex to an EU instrument specified in Regulation 2(3) to be construed as references to that Annex as amended from time to time.
In accordance with Article 47(3A) of the Food Safety (Northern Ireland) Order 1991, it has had regard to relevant advice given by the Food Standards Agency.
As required by Article 9 of Regulation (EC) No. 178/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council laying down the general principles and requirements of food law, establishing the European Food Safety Authority and laying down procedures in matters of food safety(4), there has been open and transparent public consultation during the preparation and evaluation of these Regulations.
