The following Regulations make provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972(1) and it appears to the Secretary of State that it is expedient for any reference in the following Regulations to an EU instrument listed in Schedule 1 to be construed as a reference to that instrument as amended from time to time.

Insofar as the following Regulations are made in exercise of powers under the Food Safety Act 1990(3), the Secretary of State has had regard to relevant advice given by the Food Standards Agency in accordance with section 48(4A)(4) of that Act.

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(5).
