A Practical Guide to Food Law in the United Kingdom – new edition

A new edition of A Practical Guide to Food Law in the United Kingdom is now available.

A lot has happened since the first edition was published in 2018 and this second edition, also written by Six Pump Court Chambers food law specialist Ian Thomas, highlights, and provides a reference point for, some of the major changes to food law in Great Britain arising from the UK being outside the EU. GB legislation required significant updating to take account of GB institutions such as the Food Standards Agency and Food Standards Scotland being responsible for matters relating to regulation and authorisations.

The early chapters of the book describe the legal and regulatory changes that have occurred in GB since 31 December 2020, particularly in respect of revisions to retained EU law and domestic food legislation and the authorisation process.

Subsequent chapters focus on safety, hygiene, food information and nutrition and health claims and notes the changes made to domestic legislation.

The book is published by Law Brief Publishing and a 10% discount is available for clients and contacts of Six Pump Court – contact bridget.tough@6pumpcourt.co.uk for the discount code
