Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which extend to Scotland only, amend the Food and Animal Feedingstuffs (Products of Animal Origin from China) (Emergency Control) (Scotland) Regulations 2002 (“the principal Regulations”). They implement Commission Decision 2002/69/EC concerning certain protective measures with regard to the products of animal origin imported from China (O.J. No. L 30, 31.01.02, p.51) as amended by Commission Decision 2002/441/EC (O.J. No. L 151, 11.6.02, p.16) and Commission Decision 2002/573/EC (O.J. No. L 181, 11.7.02, p.21.).

These Regulations amend the definition of “the Commission Decision” in regulation 2(1) of the principal Regulations to take account of the amendment made by Decision 2002/573/EC.

No Regulatory Impact Assessment has been prepared in respect of these Regulations.
