The Draft Caseins and Caseinates (Scotland) Regulations 2016

Closed 23 Oct 2016

Opened 23 Sep 2016


Food Standards Scotland (FSS) would welcome your comments on the draft Caseins and Caseinates (Scotland) Regulations 2016 (see Annex B below) and the partial Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA – see Annex C below)

The purpose of the draft Scottish Statutory Instrument is to:

  1. Transpose and
  2. Provide penalties for non-compliance with


the requirements of Directive (EU) 2015/2203 (hereafter referred to as the CC Directive) which repeals and replaces Council Directive 83/417/EEC, which provides for the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to certain lactoproteins (caseins and caseinates) intended for human consumption.

This is in order to:

  • Take account of other legislation adopted in the meantime, notably with regard to food law;
  • Align the compositional requirements of the products concerned to the relevant international standard issued by the Codex Alimentarius: and
  • Update the approach used in Directive 83/417/EEC which conferred powers on the European Commission in order to implement some of its provisions.



Why your views matter

We want to provide stakeholders with an opportunity to comment on the draft Scottish Regulations which are based on the preferred proposed option for the transposition of the EU Directive and the associated draft Regulatory Impact Assessment.
