EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of these Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Charges for Residues Surveillance Regulations 2006 (S.I. 2006/2285).

The Charges for Residues Surveillance Regulations 2006 give effect (except in relation to honey) to Article 27, as read with Annex IV, section A, of Regulation (EC) No. 882/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council on official controls performed to ensure the verification of compliance with feed and food law, animal health and animal welfare rules (OJ No. L165, 30.4.2004, p.1, as corrected by the corrigendum in OJ No L 191, 28.5.2004, p.1).

These Regulations amend regulation 4(2) to require information and evidence to be supplied to the Secretary of State for the purposes of calculating charges “within 30 days” as opposed to “within a reasonable time”.

1990 c. 16. Sections 45 and 48 were amended by Schedule 5 to the Food Standards Act 1999 (c. 28): paragraphs 7, 8 and 20 of that Schedule amended section 45 and paragraphs 7, 8 and 21 amended section 48.

(2)

The powers, so far as they are exercisable in relation to England, were transferred by article 2(6) of the Transfer of Functions (Agriculture and Food) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/3141) to the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and the Secretary of State acting jointly, and by article 2(3) of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Dissolution) Order 2002 (S.I. 2002/794) to the Secretary of State. In so far as they are exercisable in relation to Scotland, they were transferred to the Scottish Ministers by section 53 of the Scotland Act 1998 (c. 46) but the Secretary of State retains a concurrent power to exercise them under section 57(1) of that Act. In so far as they are exercisable in relation to Wales, they were transferred to the National Assembly for Wales by article 2(a) of and Schedule 1 to the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/672) and are now exercisable by the Welsh Ministers, having been transferred by section 162 of, and paragraph 32(a) of Schedule 11 to, the government of Wales Act 2006 (c. 32). However the Ministers of the Crown responsible retained a concurrent power to exercise them under paragraph 5 of Schedule 3 to the Government of Wales Act 1998 (c. 38) re-enacted by paragraph 5 of Schedule 3 to the Government of Wales Act 2006 (c. 32) (as read in conjunction with paragraph 26(1) of Schedule 11 to that Act): that concurrent power became vested in the Secretary of State in consequence of section 40(1) of and Schedule 5 to the Food Standards Act 1999 (c. 28), but subject to any power of the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, saved by Regulation 13 of S.I. 2000/656, to join in making regulations concerning charges for inspection in relation to residues of veterinary products; that joint power was transferred to the Secretary of State by article 2(3) of S.I. 2002/794.
