EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Charges for Residues Surveillance Regulations 2006.

The Charges for Residues Surveillance Regulations 2006 give effect (except for honey) to Article 27, as read with Annex IV section A, of Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council on official controls performed to ensure the verification of compliance with feed and food law, animal health and animal welfare rules (OJ No L165, 30.4.2004, p 1, as corrected by the corrigendum in OJ No L191, 28 5 2004, p 1).

The effect of the amendments made by these Regulations (regulation 2(2) and the Schedule) is to vary the level of fees charged under the Charges for Residues Surveillance Regulations 2006 for the Secretary of State's surveillance of animals and animal products for residues of veterinary medicinal products and other substances.

Changes to fees (by comparison with the Charges for Residues Surveillance Regulations 2006), ranging from a decrease of 10% to an increase of 30%, are itemised in the table below.
