Laid before the National Assembly for Wales
23 December 2009
Coming into force
20 January 2010
The Welsh Ministers make the following Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by sections 1 (1)(a), (e) and (f), 17(1) and (2), 26(1)(a) and (b), (2)(e) and (3), and 48(1) of the Food Safety Act 1990(1), and paragraph 1A of Schedule 2 to the European Communities Act 1972(2).
These Regulations make provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972 and it appears to the Welsh Ministers that it is expedient for any reference to an Annex to an EU instrument that is specified in regulation 2(6) to be construed as a reference to that Annex as amended from time to time.
In accordance with section 48(4A) of that Act, they have had regard to relevant advice given by the Food Standards Agency.
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(3), there has been open and transparent public consultation during the preparation and evaluation of these Regulations.
1990 c. 16. Functions of the Secretary of State under the Food Safety Act 1990 are conferred on the Welsh Ministers by virtue of paragraph 30 of and Schedule 11 to the Government of Wales Act 2006 (c. 32).
OJ No. L31, 1.2.2002, p.1. That Regulation was last amended by Regulation (EC) No. 596/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council adapting a number of instruments subject to the procedure referred to in Article 251 of the Treaty to Council Decision 1999/468/EC with regard to the regulatory procedure with scrutiny: Adaptation to the regulatory procedure with scrutiny — Part Four (OJ No. L188, 18.7.2009, p.14).
