The Food and Feed Hygiene and Safety (Miscellaneous Amendments) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (SI 2019/1013)

These Regulations are made in exercise of the powers conferred by section 8(1) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (c.16) in order to address failures of retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies arising from the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. In particular, the Regulations address the deficiency specified in section 8(2)(b) of that Act, namely the conferral of functions by retained EU law on, or in relation to, EU entities which no longer have functions in that respect under EU law in relation to the United Kingdom.

These Regulations make amendments to legislation relating to the safety of food and animal feed. Part 2 amends subordinate legislation in England and Northern Ireland. Part 3 amends retained direct EU legislation for the whole of the United Kingdom.
