The Scottish Ministers make the following Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by sections 16(1)(e), 17(1), 26(1)(a) and (3) and 48(1) of the Food Safety Act 1990(1) and all other powers enabling them to do so.
In accordance with section 48(4A) of that Act, the Scottish Ministers have had regard to relevant advice given by the Food Standards Agency(2).
There has been 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(3).
1990 c.16. Section 1(1) and (2) (definition of “food”) was substituted by S.I. 2004/2990. Sections 17(1) and 48(1) were amended by paragraph 8 of Schedule 5 to the Food Standards Act 1999 (c.28). Section 17(1) was also amended by paragraph 12 of Schedule 5 to the 1999 Act. Section 26(3) was amended by paragraph 1 of Schedule 6 to the 1999 Act.
