Abstract

These Regulations provide with respect to the enforcement, in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, of EU common marketing standards for fishery products contained in Council Regulation (EC) No. 2406/96 laying down common marketing standards for certain fishery products and Regulation (EU) No. 1379/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the common organisation of the markets in fishery and aquaculture products. Enforcement authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland shall appoint authorised officers for the purposes of ensuring that EU common marketing standards for fisheries products are complied with. Authorised officers are provided with powers of entry, inspection and seizure for the purposes of investigation and inspection of relevant premises and products to identify breaches of the relevant EU requirements. Authorised officers are also given the power to serve compliance notices for breaches of the relevant EU requirements. Contravening the EU common marketing standards is an offence. The failure to comply with a compliance notice, within the specified time, is also an offence. The Regulations make provision for appeals against compliance notices and any refusal to serve a completion notice.
