(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations replace Schedule 1 to the Products of Animal Origin (Third Country Imports) (Scotland) Regulations 2007 (S.S.I.

They also revoke the Products of Animal Origin (Third Country Imports) (Scotland) Amendment (No. 2) Regulations 2006 (S.S.I.

New Schedule 1 (import conditions) to the Principal Regulations as inserted by these Regulations is a rolling consolidation of that Schedule, listing both the Community instruments in that Schedule when the Principal Regulations were made and relevant Community instruments adopted since then. The new Schedule provides updated references to the Community instruments that set out the requirements to be enforced under the Principal Regulations when the products of animal origin in question are imported or exported from or to third (non-EU) countries.
The references to Community instruments contained within the new Schedule are to be construed as references to the text of those instruments as amended from time to time. ‘As amended’ versions of the Community instruments can be found at any time on the Eur Lex website (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/en/index.htm).
No regulatory impact assessment has been prepared for these Regulations as no impact upon business, charities or voluntary bodies is foreseen.
