Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

The Purity Criteria for Colours, Sweeteners and Miscellaneous Food Additives (Wales) Regulations 2009 (“the 2009 Regulations”) provide for the implementation of three new Commission Directives which consolidate existing European Community rules governing the purity criteria for colours, sweeteners and other miscellaneous additives used in foods.

These Regulations amend regulation 3 of the 2009 Regulations to correct a typographical error in the Welsh text.

A full impact assessment has not been prepared in relation to these Regulations as no impact on the voluntary or private sector is foreseen.
