EXPLANATORY NOTE

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

These Regulations make further amendments to the Feeding Stuffs (Wales) Regulations 2006 (SI 2006/116 (W 14) as already amended by SI 2006/617 (W 69), SI 2006/2928 (W 263) and SI 2006/3256 (W 296) (“the Feeding Stuffs Regulations”).

These Regulations provide for the implementation of Commission Directive 2006/77/EC amending Annex I to Directive 2002/32/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards organochlorine compounds in animal feed (OJ No L271, 30.9.2006, p 53).

The Regulations amend Chapter D of Schedule 5 to the Feeding Stuffs Regulations, principally by—

(a)    setting new limits in relation to aldrin and dieldrin:

(b)    setting new limits in relation to endosulphan in crude vegetable oil; and

(c)    replacing the term “fats” by the term “fats and oils”, (regulation 2(3) and Schedule 1).

The Regulations also correct an omission in Schedule 6 and typographical errors in Schedules 3 and 7 to the Feeding Stuffs Regulations (regulation 2(2), (4) and (5)).

A full regulatory impact assessment of the effect that this instrument will have on the costs of business has been prepared. Copies may be obtained from the Food Standards Agency, 11th Floor, Southgate House, Wood Street, Cardiff, CF10 1EW.
