EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations make provision to enforce Regulation (EU) No 609/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council, on the provisions of food intended for infants and young children, food for special medical purposes, and total diet replacement for weight control and repealing Council Directive 92/52/EEC, Commission Directives 96/8/EC, 1999/21/EC, 2006/125/EC and 2006/141/EC, Directive 2009/39/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and Commission Regulations (EC) No 41/2009 and (EC) No 953/2009.

These Regulations implement the framework of Regulation (EU) No 609/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council, and introduce an improvement notice enforcement regime.

Regulation 3 provides for the enforcement of these Regulations by each district council within its district.

Regulation 4 creates an offence and penalty for breach of Article 9(2) of Regulation (EU) No 609/2013

Regulation 5 and Schedule 2 apply certain provisions of the Food Safety (Northern Ireland) Order 1991 (S.I. 1991 N.I.7) with modifications. This includes the application (with modifications) of Article 9(1), enabling an improvement notice to be served requiring compliance with a specified EU requirement. The provisions, as applied and modified, make the failure to comply with an improvement notice a criminal offence.
