Consultation on proposed changes to UK Wine Legislation

Closed 29 Sep 2021

Opened 9 Sep 2021

Overview

This consultation seeks your views on three issues.

First, on the Government’s proposals to remove the requirement for wine imported to Great Britain to be accompanied by a VI-1 certificate.

Second, on proposed changes to the Food (Lot Marking) Regulations 1996 to ensure the UK complies with obligations under the UK-EU Trade and Co-operation Agreement.

Third, on providing a transitional period to allow the EU industry time to adjust to new UK wine labelling rules.

On all three issues, we believe that these measures are either strongly beneficial for the UK or are necessary technical provisions to implement the Trade and Cooperation Agreement with the EU. We are seeking views on these proposals and the mechanisms to implement these changes.
