Overview

Food Standards Scotland (FSS) would welcome your comments on the draft Novel Foods (Scotland) Regulations 2017 (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 Regulation (EU)  2015/2283 which defines foods classed as “Novel Foods”. The EU Regulation lays out the requirements for placing novel foods on the market within the Union including authorisation procedures, and details new specific rules for traditional foods from third countries.

Please see the documents attached below for full details of our consultation.

We would appreciate it if you could then respond using the online questionnaire.

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 Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 and the associated partial Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment.
