Food Labelling (Amendment)(No. 2) Regulations 1999 (S.I. No. 1483 of 1999).

Type of law

The principal Regulations require the quantity of certain ingredients or categories of ingredients of a food to be indicated (regs.5(bA) and 19 of those Regulations). These Regulations implement Commission Directive 1999/10/EC, by: removing that obligation in the case of sweeteners, sugars, vitamins or minerals used in the preparation of a food in certain circumstances (reg. 5); (b) providing some derogations from the existing method for calculating the quantity of ingredients or categories of ingredients (reg. 5); (c) making a consequential amendment (reg. 3) and contain a transitional provision (reg. 7). These Regulations also require prepacked food sold or supplied as an individual portion and intended as a minor accompaniment to another food or another service to be marked or labelled with particulars relating to packaging gases, added sweeteners or added sugars.
