This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 1 July 1997, amend the Food Hygiene Regulations 1974.
The amendment exempts the following from all the requirements of the principal regulations, except regulations 82, 85, and 86:
Premises registered under the Dairy Industry Regulations 1990 or licensed under the Meat Act 1981 are currently exempt only from registration pursuant to regulation 4.
The Dairy Industry Act 1952 and the Meat Act 1981 impose requirements relating to food safety that are equivalent to those of the principal regulations. The amendment removes the necessity for dairy, seafood, and meat processors to comply with both food safety regimes.
