The Welsh Ministers make the following Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by sections 16(2), 17(1) and (2), 26(1)(a), 2(a) and (3),31 and 48(1) of the Food Safety Act 1990(1), which are now vested in them(2), as read with paragraph 1A of Schedule 2 to the European Communities Act 1972(3).

These Regulations make provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972 Act and it appears to the Welsh Ministers that it is expedient for certain references to an EU instrument or to an Annex to an EU instrument specified in regulation 2(3) to be construed as references to that instrument or Annex as amended from time to time.

In accordance with section 48(4A) of the Food Safety Act 1990 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(4), there has been open and transparent public consultation during the preparation and evaluation of these Regulations.
