These Regulations amend the Merchant Shipping and Fishing Vessels (Medical Stores) Regulations 1995. The amendment adopts the wording of Council Directive 92/29/EEC of 31st March 1992 (O.J. No. L113, 30.4.92, p. 19), which the 1995 Regulations implement, in defining the area of operation for vessels carrying category C stores as “very close to shore”.
