Abstract

These Regulations revoke and replace the Food (Lot Marking) Regulations 1992. The new Regulations continue the previous requirements that food which has been produced, prepared or packaged as part lot is marked and labelled as to enable the lot to be identified. These Regulations have been made with a view to simplifying the 1992 Regulations. They implement Council Directive 89/396/EC as amended by Council Directive 91/238/EC and Council Directive 92/11/EC. (46 regulations)
