Welcome to the home page of 'Foodlaw-Reading'. Based at the University of Reading, UK, the site is maintained by Dr David Jukes. It seeks to provide easy access to sources of information on current food laws and its development. The main focus is on the UK and the EU although some additional information in international developments is also provided (especially issues linked to Codex and the WTO). It is hoped that it will also help those seeking to learn about and understand food law issues. Please note that it is maintained as time permits and updates may at times be delayed.

1 January 2021 - Brexit

Please note that, following the end of the Implementation Period, UK legislation (except for Northern Ireland) is now separate from that of the European Union. These pages will be progressively updated to reflect this change. For more details, see: UK Food Law - EU Legislation as Amended for the UK

However, although the legal basis has changed, most requirements relating to the sale of food products in the United Kingdom have not changed. Products exported to the EU will however need to comply with certain new requirements.
