Overview

Food Standards Scotland (FSS) would welcome your comments on the draft Food Standards and Food Hygiene (Miscellaneous Amendments) (Scotland) Regulations 2019 (see Annex B) and the partial Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment (BRIA - see Annex C).

The purpose of the draft Scottish Statutory Instrument is to

  1. Amend the Fruit Juices and Fruit Nectars (Scotland) Regulations 2013 to draw businesses’ attention to Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1040/2014;
  2. Amend the Food Hygiene (Scotland) Regulations 2006 to draw attention to Regulation (EU) No 2017/2158 on acrylamide;
  3. Provide for Commission Regulation (EU) No 2017/1973 as regards official controls on fishery products;
  4. Amend the Country of Origin of Certain Meats (Scotland) Regulations 2016 to remove superfluous definitions;
  5. Make other miscellaneous amendments to various Scottish Statutory Instruments (SSIs) to ensure the accuracy and currency of the statute book in Scotland in relation to food and feed before the UK exits the EU. 

 

 

Why We Are Consulting

To provide stakeholders with an opportunity to comment on the draft Scottish Statutory Instrument for the Food Standards and Food Hygiene (Miscellaneous Amendments) (Scotland) Regulations 2019 and associated partial Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment in relation to mitigation measures and benchmark levels for the reduction of the presence of acrylamide in food.  This is based on the preferred option to make all the proposed changes described above in a single instrument.
