About this consultation

Who will this consultation be of most interest to?
Enforcement authorities, manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers of condensed milk and dried milk. The consultation may also be of interest to consumers and others who may have an interest in the policy and legislation on condensed milk and dried milk.

What is the subject of this consultation?
The draft Condensed Milk and Dried Milk Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2018 aim to consolidate the Condensed Milk and Dried Milk Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2003 (the 2003 Regulations) and the Condensed Milk and Dried Milk (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2008 (the 2008 Regulations).  The draft Regulations will remove out-dated references to the Food Labelling Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1996 (FLR) and introduce improvement notice provisions for non-compliance.

What is the purpose of this consultation?
To provide stakeholders with an opportunity to comment on the draft Regulations (at annex B). The Regulations are based on the proposed preferred option of consolidating the 2003 and 2008 Regulations, and to remove out of date references to the FLR and introduce improvement notice provisions for non-compliance.
