What are the Food Safety Hygiene (England) Regulations 2013?

The Food Safety Hygiene (England) Regulations 2013 (FSH(E)R 2013), SI 2013/2996 revoked and re-enact with some changes the Food Safety and Hygiene (England) Regulations 2006 and consolidated existing food hygiene legislation.

In their original form, these Regulations provided for the execution and enforcement of EU applicable instruments. These included:

  1. Regulation (EC) 852/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 on the hygiene of foodstuffs (OJ-L 139, 30.4.2004, p 1)

  2. Regulation (EC) 853/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 laying down specific hygiene rules for food of animal origin (OJ-L 139, 30.4.2004, p 55)

  3. Regulation (EC) 854/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 laying down specific rules for the organisation of official controls on products of animal origin intended for human consumption (OJ-L139 of 30.04.2004, p 206). This EU Regulation has been subsequently repealed by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1013 of 16 April 2019 on prior notification of consignments of certain categories of animals and goods entering the Union (OJ-L 165, 21.6.2019, p 8)

Changes post IP completion day

Regulation (EC) 852/2004 and Regulation (EC) 853/2004, alongside the vast majority of applicable EU Regulations in this area, have been retained pursuant to the European Union (Withdrawal) Act
