RE: NF website and Art 29
I would like to refer to your email message dated 9/1/2018 and 30/1/2018 regarding the above
subject, and to inform you the following:
Cyprus applies the Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council
of 29 April 2004 on official controls performed to ensure the verification of compliance with
feed and food law, animal health and animal welfare rules.
As regards to Art 29 of the new NFR, we are still in the process of amending our National Food
Law [The Food (Control and Sale) Law] so as to include this Regulation in the list of Regulations
for which penalties (penal sanctions and administrative fines) are specified.
