No. L 99, 20.4.96, p.14).

Regulation 3 amends regulation 9 of the principal Regulations to make it an offence to fail to comply with a notice served under the principal Regulations and to provide a more detailed offence provision.

Regulation 4 amends regulation 10 of the principal Regulations to provide for a fine, on summary conviction, not exceeding the statutory maximum.

Regulation 5 amends the Schedule to the principal Regulations by substituting references to “occupiers” for those to “operators”.
