Overview

Food Standards Scotland (FSS) would welcome your comments on the draft Foods for Specific Groups (Medical Foods) (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. Enable the enforcement of and
  2. Provide penalties for non compliance with

the requirements of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/128 which lays down rules on the specific compositional and information requirements on foods for special medical purposes.

Please note, this proposal does not extend to foods for special medical purposes for infants for which the requirements are due to apply from 22nd February 2020, post EU Exit. 

Why We Are Consulting

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 enforcement of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/128 and the associated partial Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment.

What Happens Next

Consultation responses will be analysed and feedback will be provided following the consultation.
