Official Feed and Food Controls (Wales) Regulations 2007 (W.S.I. No. 3294 (W. 290) of 2007).

Type of law

These Regulations make provision, in respect of Wales, for official controls performed to ensure the verification of compliance with Community feed and food law and animal health and animal welfare rules. They also impose prohibitions on the introduction of certain feed and food into Wales in the light of community law.
The Regulations revoke and re-enact with modifications the Official Feed and Food Controls (Wales) Regulations 2006. The principal changes concern: (a) the prohibition of the introduction into Wales of certain feed and food products and the formulation of the relevant offence; (b) the duty of an authorized officer of an enforcement authority to serve a notice when he or she proposes to place a consignment of feed or food under official detention in case of suspicion of non-compliance or because there is doubt as to the identity or the destination of the consignment, or because the feed or food does not comply with feed or food law; (c) the offence of contravention or failing to comply with certain obligations relating to the checking of products that are introduced into Wales; (d) expenses that may be charged by competent authorities where they arise from additional official controls or arise in respect of coordinated assistance and follow-up by the European Commission; and (e) revision of the definitions of relevant feed law and relevant food law in Schedules 2 and 3.
