Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations further amend the Food Labelling Regulations 1996 (S.I. 1996/1499) in relation to Scotland. Those Regulations extend to the whole of Great Britain. These Regulations implement in Scotland Commission Directive 2003/120/EC (O.J. No. L 333, 20.12.03, p.51) amending Directive 90/496/EEC on nutrition labelling for foodstuffs.

The Regulations specify a conversion factor for salatrims to be used in the calculation of the declared energy value of foods (regulation 4) and update the definition of “Directive 90/496” (regulation 3).
