(1)

Exemptions from the requirements of the Weights and Measures (Packaged Goods) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2011 for small quantities of certain packaged goods which are not marked with the E-mark are in general incompatible with Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the provisions of food information to consumers and cannot be maintained after 13 December 2014. However, Article 11 of that Regulation provides that it is without prejudice to more specific EU provisions on weights and measures Article 2(2) of Council Directive 2001/111/EC of 20 December 2001 relating to certain sugars intended for human consumption provides an exemption from quantity labelling for pre-packed sugar in a quantity of less than 20 g, therefore an exemption permitted in relation to sugar.
