2.  These Regulations amend S.I. 1999/1872 by —

(a)inserting a new regulation, 9A, into that instrument, providing for the payment of fees and the reimbursement of the costs of laboratory analyses to the specified approval body (“the competent body”) by a person applying to that body for approval of an establishment under regulation 5 or 7 of that instrument, and making supplementary provisions relating thereto (regulation 3);

(b)inserting a new regulation, 16A, into that instrument, providing for the payment of fees and the reimbursement of the costs of laboratory analyses to the competent body by a person applying to it for approval as an “intermediary” under regulation 12 or 14 of that instrument, and making supplementary provisions relating thereto (regulation 4); and

(c)inserting a new Schedule, 1A, into that instrument, specifying the fees payable by virtue of new regulations 9A and 16A (regulation 5).
