The European Communities (Purity Criteria on Food Additives other than Colours and Sweeteners) (Amendment) regulations 2003

These Regulations amend the European Communities (Purity Criteria on Food Additives other than Colours and Sweeteners) Regulations 1998 (S.I. No. 541 of 1998) and may be cited as the European Communities (Purity Criteria on Food Additives other than Colours and Sweeteners) (Amendment) Regulations 2003

These Regulations implement Commission Directive 2002/82/EC which amends the Annex to Commission Directive 96/77/EC laying down specific purity criteria on food additives other than colours and sweeteners

This S.I. adapts, due to technical progress, existing purity criteria set out in Directive 96/77/EC. It also establishes new purity criteria for those food additives for which purity criteria set out in Directive 96/77/EC were not sufficient
