The Animal Feed (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2017

Made

21st February 2017

Laid before the Scottish Parliament

22nd February 2017

Coming into force

23rd March 2017

The Scottish Ministers make the following Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by sections 74A(1), (2) and (4) and 84 of the Agriculture Act 1970(1), section 2(2) and paragraph 1A of schedule 2 of the European Communities Act 1972(2) 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 Annexes to Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council on additives for use in animal nutrition(3) to be construed as references to those Annexes as amended from time to time.

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(4).
