Dear Consultee

EGGS AND CHICKS REGULATIONS

You may be aware that, on 14 September 2009, Defra introduced new Eggs and Chicks Regulations for England 2009 ( SI No. 1263) to include controls on the movement of eggs intended for human consumption required by the Salmonella National Control Programme ( NCP) for laying flocks. I am writing to let you know that Scottish Ministers intend to introduce parallel measures to those introduced by Defra, before the end of 2010.

The Eggs and Chicks (Scotland) Regulations 2010 will provide enforcement powers for the EC marketing obligations which the NCP for Salmonella places on the operators of laying flocks.

A more detailed summary of the proposals are attached, and we would welcome your comments on the intended scope of these controls.

The changes to the Eggs and Chicks Regulations should have no additional cost implications for the egg industry.

If you wish to submit comments on these proposals please send your views to my colleague Angela Felvus at Angela.Felvus@scotland.gsi.gov.uk. or
