FSA Scotland letter, 22 May 2000

The Colours in Food (Amendment) (Scotland) Regulations 2000

The letter announces that the above Regulations have now been made. They were laid in Parliament on 9 May 2000 and come into force with effect from 30 June 2000.

These Regulations, which extend to Scotland only, amend the Colours in Food Regulations 1995 by bringing up to date a reference to Directive I 995/45/EC laying down specific criteria concerning colours for use in foodstuffs so as to cover its amendment by Directive 1999/75/EC which changed the specification for "El6Oa(i) Mixed Carotenes".
