This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 20 December 2002, amend the Weights and Measures Regulations 1999. The amendment is required as a result of the commencement of the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code on 20 December 2002. On that date, the Food Regulations 1984 will be revoked by a separate Order in Council. However, the requirement for mandatory statements of quantity marking for packages of food, currently provided for in those regulations, will be retained with some minor changes in the Weights and Measures Regulations 1999.
