This report describes the 24 new pieces of UK legislation in the food and agriculture sector that have occurred between April 2005 and March 2006). These are shown in tabular form in Appendix I.
The most important developments with relevance to measurement science are measures introduced as a result of Regulation (EC) 882/2004, a framework regulation to harmonise levels of food and agriculture enforcement throughout the community. This instrument, together with more specific legislation at European level widens the requirements relating to sampling, analysis and interpretation for official feed and food control, especially in relation to food contaminants and undesirable substances in animal feed.
