These Regulations provide for the enforcement in England and Wales of EU marketing standards for bananas set out in Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1333/2011 laying down marketing standards for bananas, rules on the verification of compliance with those marketing standards and requirements for notifications in the banana sector. These Regulations designate the Secretary of State as the competent national authority for England and Wales, define offences for purposes of the Commission Regulations and provide for powers of enforcement of authorized officers. Authorized officers may, among other things: affix labels indicating various types of non-compliance with respect to the marketing standards; accept written undertakings as regards inspections; and issue warning notices and movement control notices.
