Dear Ms Collins
Thank you for your email of 30 April about the new Jam and Similar Products Regulations.
We are currently in an extended technical notification period with the EU Commission as both the Commission and other Member States have submitted comments and a detailed opinion regarding our changes therefore triggering an extension to the mandatory 3 month notification period. This extension period expires on 3rd June 2014 and during this time we cannot lay the Statutory Instrument. We will be able to provide a further update nearer that time once further discussions are held with the EU Commission.
I hope this is helpful
