(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which apply to Wales, amend the Medical Food (Wales) Regulations 2000 (S.I. 2000/1866 (W.125)), the Notification of Marketing of Food for Particular Nutritional Uses (Wales) Regulations 2007 (S.I. 2007/1040 (W.100)), the Nutrition and Health Claims (Wales) Regulations 2007 (S.I. 2007/2611 (W.222)), and the Infant Formula and Follow-on Formula (Wales) Regulations 2007 (S.I. 2007/3573 (W.316)), by transferring nutrition functions under each set of regulations from the Food Standards Agency to the Welsh Ministers.

The Welsh Ministers’ Code of Practice on the carrying out of Regulatory Impact Assessments was considered in relation to these Regulations. As a result, it was not considered necessary to carry out a regulatory impact assessment as to the likely costs and benefits of complying with these Regulations.
