EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which apply to Wales, implement Commission Regulation (EU) No. 216/2014 amending Regulation (EC) No. 2075/2005 laying down specific rules on official controls for Trichinella in meat. They also implement Commission Regulation (EU) No. 218/2014 amending Annexes to Regulations (EC) No. 853/2004 and (EC) No. 854/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council and Commission Regulation (EC) No. 2074/2005, which removes the requirement for a special health mark and the restriction to the national market for emergency slaughter meat. These Regulations also implement Commission Regulation (EU) No. 579/2014 granting derogation from certain provisions of Annex II to Regulations (EC) No. 852/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the transport of liquid oils and fats by sea.

These Regulations implement Commission Regulation (EU) No. 218/2014 by amending the Food Hygiene (Wales) Regulations 2006 to revoke regulation 32A (special health mark) and Schedule 6A (the special health mark) (regulation 2(2) and (5)).

These Regulations implement Commission Regulation (EU) No. 216/2014 by amending the Food Hygiene (Wales) Regulations 2006 so that the definition of Regulation 2075/2005 in Schedule 1 includes the amendments made to its articles by Regulation 216/2014 (regulation 2(3)).

These Regulations implement Commission Regulation (EU) No. 579/2014 by amending the Food Hygiene (Wales) Regulations 2006 so that the reference to the Annex to Commission Directive 96/3/EC (list of acceptable previous cargoes) at paragraph 2(2) of Schedule 3 is substituted by the Annex to Regulation EU 579/2014 (regulation 2(4)).

The Welsh Ministers’ Code of Practice on the carrying out of Regulatory Impact Assessments was considered in relation to these Regulations. As a result, a regulatory impact assessment has been prepared as to the likely costs and benefits of complying with these Regulations. A copy can be obtained from the Food Standards Agency at Food Standards Agency Wales, 11th Floor, Southgate House, Wood Street, Cardiff, CF10 1EW.
