Amendments to the Food Additives, Food Flavourings, and Novel Foods (Authorisations) and Food and Feed (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2023 have been published in the Welsh Statutory Instruments.
These Regulations make provision, in relation to Wales, on regulated food product authorisations. They also make minor corrections to various Welsh subordinate instruments on food law and animal feed law.
Part 2 of these Regulations (regulations 2 to 4 and Schedules 1 and 2) is made in exercise of powers in Regulation (EC) No 1331/2008 establishing a common authorisation procedure for food additives, food enzymes and food flavourings (EUR 2008/1331). Together, the amendments made in Part 2 of these Regulations provide for the authorisation, in relation to Wales, of the placing on the market and use of the food additive E 960c rebaudioside M produced via enzyme modification of steviol glycosides from Stevia. The existing authorisation entries for food additive E 960 steviol glycosides are changed to reflect the amended name and E-number E 960a steviol glycosides from Stevia.
