The following Regulations make provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972(1) and it appears to the Welsh Ministers that it is expedient for any reference in the following Regulations to an EU instrument listed in Schedule 1 to be construed as a reference to that instrument as amended from time to time.

There has been consultation 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(5).
