APPENDIX III: LEGISLATION AND GUIDANCE – Food and Drink – Good Manufacturing Practice, 7th Edition

APPENDIX III
LEGISLATION AND GUIDANCE

There is a vast number of guides and industry codes of practice issued by a variety of bodies, some of which are referenced in the chapters. Previous editions of this Guide have included a comprehensive listing of such guides and codes. These will not be repeated in this appendix; instead, a list of websites is identified where further information can be accessed.

The Food Law Guide is issued by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and is an invaluable listing of UK Food Laws and Regulations, with brief descriptive outlines and indication of European Union (EU) Directives to which each gives effect in the UK. The guide is updated quarterly and is available on the FSA website. To take account of legislative provisions, reference should be made to the actual texts of the relevant laws and regulations, purchasable from The Stationery Office or any of its bookshops (http://www.tso.co.uk).
