Amendments to Retained Regulation 2019/1793: Controls Applied to Imported Food and Feed not of Animal Origin

England and Wales specific

When the UK left the EU, imported food legislation that was in force at the time was retained and domesticated for it to remain operable. Prior to the UK exit from the EU, routine updates to EU imported food legislation, made by the European Commission, were directly applicable in the UK. Moving forwards, the appropriate authorities in GB are now responsible for reviewing and amending the legislation as required.
