The Welsh Ministers make the following Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by sections 6(4)(1), 16(1)(2), 17(2)(3), 26(2)(a) and (3)(4) and 48(1)(5) of the Food Safety Act 1990(6), and paragraph 1A of Schedule 2 to the European Communities Act 1972(7).

In accordance with section 48(4A)(8) of the Food Safety Act 1990, the Welsh Ministers have had regard to relevant advice given by the Food Standards Agency.

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 references in these Regulations to the following Regulations to be construed as references to those Regulations as amended from time to time—

(a)Council Regulation (EC) No 104/2000 on the common organisation of the markets in fishery and aquaculture products(9);

(b)Commission Regulation (EC) No 2065/2001 laying down detailed rules for the application of Council Regulation (EC) No 104/2000 as regards informing consumers about fishery and aquaculture products(10);

(c)Council Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 establishing a Community control system for ensuring compliance with the rules of the common fisheries policy(11); and

(d)Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 404/2011 laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 establishing a Community control system for ensuring compliance with the rules of the Common Fisheries Policy(12).

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(13), there has been open and transparent public consultation during the preparation and evaluation of these Regulations.
