Scottish Statutory Instruments
5th May 2010
Laid before the Scottish Parliament
6th May 2010
Coming into force
28th May 2010
The Scottish Ministers make the following Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by section 2(2) of, and paragraph 1A of Schedule 2 to, the European Communities Act 1972(1) and all other powers enabling them to do so.
These Regulations make provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972 and it appears to the Scottish Ministers that it is expedient for references to the EU instruments referred to in Schedule 1 to be construed as references to those instruments as amended from time to time.
The Scottish Ministers have carried out consultation as required by Article 9 of Regulation (EC) No. 178/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council laying down the general principles and requirements of food law, establishing the European Food Safety Authority and laying down procedures in matters of food safety(2).
1972 c.68. Section 2(2) was amended by the Scotland Act 1998 (c.46), Schedule 8, paragraph 15(3); the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006 (c.51) (“the 2006 Act”), section 27(1); and by the European Union (Amendment) Act 2008 (c.7), Schedule, Part 1. Paragraph 1A of Schedule 2 was inserted by section 28 of the 2006 Act.
O.J. No. L 31, 1.2.2002, p.1, last amended by Regulation (EC) No. 596/2009 (O.J. No. L 188, 18.7.2009, p.14).
