The Food and Feed (Miscellaneous Amendments) (Scotland) Regulations 2022

Closes 10 Oct 2022

Opened 12 Sep 2022

Overview

This consultation is to seek stakeholders’ views, comments and feedback in relation to FSS’ proposals to correct deficiencies in domestic legislation relating to animal feed, food contact materials and extraction solvents. This is  to ensure legislation operates effectively following the UK’s exit from the European Union (EU).

Currently, the relevant domestic legislation for animal feed, food contact materials and extraction solvents contains deficiencies that need to be resolved following the UK exit from the EU. The legislation cross-refers to Annexes and specific Articles of associated EU Directives. To ensure clean and operable legislation, miscellaneous references to the EU Directives and associated Annexes must also be removed from domestic legislation and the detailed requirements fully transposed instead. The deficiencies need to be addressed using the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (EUWA) powers.

These powers will no longer be available after 31 December 2022, therefore the revised domestic legislation should be established before the powers expire.

Please read the attached consultation letter at the bottom of this page before giving us your views in the online survey.

Why your views matter

The purpose of this consultation is to seek stakeholder’s views, comments and feedback in relation to the proposals to incorporate requirements in EU Directives, into domestic law on animal feed, food contact materials and extraction solvents.

We ask stakeholders to consider if any relevant changes have been missed, or if they are content with the proposed changes.

This consultation covers changes to the Scottish Statutory Instrument only. Similar changes are being made to England and Wales domestic legislation.
