(b)substituting a revised Schedule 1 (definitions of EU legislation) for the existing Schedule 1 (regulation 2(4)).

These Regulations also amend the 2006 Regulations to provide that when certain requirements are complied with a person shall be considered not to have contravened or failed to comply with specified provisions of Regulation (EC) No. 853/2004 by substituting a revised regulation 17 (offences and penalties) and inserting new Schedules (regulation 2(3) and (5)).

The specified provisions of EU legislation and the related requirements that must be complied with if a person is to be considered not to have contravened or failed to comply with them are set out in the following paragraphs together with the relevant provision of revised regulation 17—

(a)Article 3(1) or 4(1)(a) of Regulation (EC) No. 853/2004 as read in either case with paragraph 5 of Chapter II of Section I of Annex III to that Regulation (food business operators to ensure that slaughterhouses in which domestic ungulates are slaughtered have lockable facilities for the refrigerated storage of detained meat and separate lockable facilities for the storage of meat declared unfit for human consumption) and the related requirements are set out in new Schedule 3A (new regulation 17 (5));
