FSA Scotland Letter, 23 August 2002

COMPOSITIONAL STANDARDS - Condensed and Dried Milk Regulations 2002 (Scotland)

The letter seeks views and comments on the following documents enclosed with the letter:

Similar but separate legislation applies in England and in Wales and in Northern Ireland.

The new legislation will replace the Condensed Milk and Dried Milk Regulations 1977 (as amended) and will come in force on the 17 July 2003. The intended effect of the Directive is to lay down definitions and common rules governing the composition, manufacturing specifications and labelling of certain partly or wholly dehydrated preserved milk for human consumption.

It is envisaged that the implementation of the new Regulations will bring about little change from the current labelling requirements.
