The Food for Specific Groups (Information and Compositional Requirements) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2017

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally made).

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Food for Specific Groups (Information and Compositional Requirements) (England) Regulations 2016 (“the 2016 Regulations”), which make provision to enforce, in England, the requirements of Regulation (EU) No 609/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the provisions of food intended for infants and young children, food for special medical purposes, and total diet replacement for weight control, and also insert an alternative improvement notice enforcement regime alongside existing domestic criminal sanctions into various Regulations.

The 2016 Regulations provide for the enforcement of requirements specified by Regulation (EU) No 609/2013 by applying, with modifications, certain provisions of the Food Safety Act 1990 (1990 c.16), to the 2016 Regulations.

These Regulations make minor amendments to correct typographical errors in the 2016 Regulations, and to correctly apply a modified s.35 of the Food Safety Act 1990.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
