Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulation)

These Regulations amend Part V of Schedule 2 to the Products of Animal Origin (Third Country Imports) (Wales) Regulations 2002 (S.I. 2002/1387 (W.136)) in order to give effect in Wales to Commission Decision 2002/794/EC concerning certain protective measures with regard to poultry meat, poultry meat products and poultry meat preparations intended for human consumption and imported from Brazil (OJ No. L276, 12.10.2002, p.66).

These Regulations also correct an earlier defect in S.I. 2002/1387 (W.136) by including in Part V of Schedule 2 to that instrument a reference to Commission Decision 2002/251/EC concerning certain protective measures with regard to poultry meat and certain fishery and aquaculture products intended for human consumption and imported from Thailand (OJ No. L84, 28.3.2002, p.77). That Decision is already listed in section H of Part IX of Schedule 2 (protective measures - fishery products).

The Products of Animal Origin (Third Country Imports) (Wales) Regulations 2002 implement for Wales Council Directive 97/78/EC laying down the principles governing the organisation of veterinary checks on products entering the Community from third countries (OJ No. L24, 30.1.98, p.9).

The products to which S.I. 2002/1387 (W.136) applies are defined in regulation 2(1) of and Schedule 3 to that instrument.

Schedule 2 to S.I. 2002/1387 (W.136) lays down the conditions, by reference to the Community legislation listed in it, for the import of those products into Wales from third countries.

No regulatory appraisal has been prepared in relation to these Regulations.

These Regulations have been made in English only as, given the urgency with which they have had to be made, it was not reasonably practicable in the time available to produce a Welsh text.
