EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note does not form part of the Regulations)


These Regulations revoke, with effect from 12th January 2004, the Animal Test Certificates Regulations 1996, which provide for the procedure by which application is made for an animal test certificate issued under the Medicines Act 1968 and which also set out statutory standard provisions incorporated into such certificates under the Medicines Act. Statutory standard provisions which were superseded by the 1996 Regulations are revoked insofar as they take effect upon the revocation of the 1996 Regulations.

In consequence, standard provisions will not be set out in statute, but will survive so far as incorporated in existing certificates (Interpretation Act 1978, section 16). It remains open to the licensing authority to issue new certificates with individual provisions (Medicines Act 1968, sections 20 and 36).
