1 documents for this subject


The Food and Feed Safety (Fukushima Restrictions) (Scotland) Revocation Regulations 2022 came into force on 25 June 2022 and revoked retained Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/6 imposing special conditions governing the import of feed and food originating or consigned from Japan following the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power station.

In addition, this SSI revoked declaration OFFC 2019/S/003 made under Regulation 35 of the Official Food and Feed Controls (Scotland) Regulations 2009 (OFFC). Regulation 35 was revoked by regulation 3(2) of the Food and Feed (EU) Exit (Scotland) (Amendments) Regulations 2020, with a savings provision made under regulation 3(4). Notwithstanding the revocation of regulation 35, any declaration made under regulation 35 that applies immediately before the revocation comes into force, continued to have effect as if it were made under Article 53 of Regulation 178/2002. Therefore revocation of the OFFC declaration is made by way of Scottish Statutory Instrument. 

The TARP was not amended in this way, therefore the declaration made under those powers is revoked in accordance with Regulation 25(3).
