Following consideration of SI 2000/2254 by the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments (JCSI) several changes to the SI were recommended. These included the removal of the definition of 'the Directive' in regulation 2, and the removal of the phrase 'as the case may be' from regulation 7. The tidying up of part 1 and part III of Schedule 1. The correction of a typographical error part VI of Schedule 1, where £1,5000 was printed instead of the correct sum of £1,500 and the inclusion of the words 'or territory' after 'country' in a number of places in Schedule 2.
An amending instrument has been produced and we seek your comments on this new amending SI (see Annex 1). We are consulting all organisations that responded to the May 2000 consultation along with consumer groups, the FDF, and the BRC, on the draft Food Irradiation Provisions (England) Regulation
Comments are required by the FSA by 11 January 2002.
