EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations implement Commission Regulation (EU) No. 216/2014 amending Regulation (EC) No. 2075/2005 laying down specific rules on official controls for Trichinella in meat. They also implement Commission Regulation (EU) No. 218/2014 amending Annexes to Regulations (EC) No. 853/2004 and (EC) No. 854/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council and Commission Regulation (EC) No. 2074/2005, which removes the requirement for a special health mark and the restriction to the national market for emergency slaughter meat.

These Regulations implement Commission Regulation (EU) No. 218/2014 by amending the Food Hygiene (Scotland) Regulations 2006 to revoke regulation 32A (special health mark) and Schedule 6A (the special health mark) (regulation 2(2) and (4)).

These Regulations implement the Commission Regulation (EU) No. 216/2014 by amending the Food Hygiene (Scotland) Regulations 2006 so that the definition of Regulation 2075/2005 includes the amendments made to its articles by Regulation 216/2014 (regulation 2(3)).

A Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment of the effect that Regulation 2(3) will have on the costs of business, the voluntary sector and the public sector, has been prepared and placed in the Scottish Parliament Information Centre. Copies may be obtained from the Food Standards Agency in Scotland, 6th Floor, St Magnus House, 25 Guild Street, Aberdeen, AB11 6NJ and online at www.legislation.gov.uk.
