Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which extend to Scotland only, amend the Food (Peanuts from China) (Emergency Control) (Scotland) (No. 2) Regulations 2002 (S.S.I. 2002/425) (“the principal Regulations”).

The principal Regulations implement Commission Decision 2002/79/EC imposing special conditions on the import of peanuts and certain products derived from peanuts originating in, or consigned from China (O.J. No. L 34, 5.2.2002, p.21) as amended by Commission Decision 2002/233/EC (O.J. No. L 78, 21.3.2002, p.14) and Commission Decision 2002/678/EC (O.J. No. L 229, 27.8.2002, p.33).

These Regulations implement Commission Decision 2003/550/EC (O.J. No. L 187, 26.7.2003, p.39) which further amends Commission Decision 2002/79/EC.

The principal changes effected by these Regulations are that–

(a)the period for which consignments subject to sampling and analysis may be detained is increased from 10 to 15 working days; and

(b)where a consignment is split, copies of the health certificate and analysis certificate must accompany each part of the consignment. (Regulation 2).
