Abstract

These Regulations amend the Sweeteners in Food Regulations 1995 in relation to England by: (a) bringing up to date the definition of "Directive 94/35/EC" so as to cover the amendment of that Directive by Directive 2003/115/EC (reg.3(1)(a)); (b) bringing up to date the definition of "Directive 95/31/EC" (the Directive relates to specific purity criteria for sweeteners which are to be used in foodstuffs) so as to cover its amendment by Directive 2004/46/EC (reg.3(1)(b)); (c) substituting a new definition for the definition of the term "permitted sweetener" to reflect the fact that Sucralose and the Salt of aspartame-acesulfame are now permitted sweeteners (reg.3(1)(c)); (d) making minor amendments to the definition of the term "maximum usable dose" as applied to those sweeteners which under the Regulations are permitted to be used in specified foodstuffs (reg.3(2)); (e) making explicit the fact that Schedule 1 (permitted sweeteners and the foods in or on which they may be used) is to be read in conjunction with the notes thereto (regulation4(a)). They make some further amendments relative to specific sweeteners.
