Those Regulations extend to the whole of Great Britain. These Regulations implement in Wales Commission Directive 2005/26/EC establishing a list of food ingredients or substances provisionally excluded from Annex IIIa of Directive 2000/13/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (OJ No. L75, 22.3.2005, p.33).
2. These Regulations—
(a)confer an exemption until 25 November 2007 from the allergen labelling requirements in regulation 34B of the principal Regulations in the case of certain ingredients originating from allergenic ingredients (regulations 5 and 7 and Schedule);
(b)make some consequential amendments (regulations 4 and 6) and update the definition of “Directive 2000/13” (regulation 3).

A regulatory appraisal of the effect that these Regulations will have on the costs of business has been prepared and placed in the library of the National Assembly for Wales together with a Transposition Note setting out how the main elements of Directive 2005/26/EC are transposed in these Regulations.
