General Product and Safety Regulations

Changes to Existing Safety Legislation

Revocation of the General Product Safety Regulations 1994

10.1 Where, in relation to any product, a suspension notice (within the meaning of CPA) has (by virtue of regulation 11(b) of the General Product Safety Regulations 1994) been served under section 14 of the 1987 Act and is in force immediately prior to the coming into force of these Regulations, it shall continue in force not withstanding the revocation of the General Product Safety Regulations 1994 by these Regulations, and those Regulations will continue to apply accordingly.

Repeal of section 10 of the Consumer Protection Act 1987

10.2 Bringing the supply (other than for sale) of antiques within these Regulations has enabled us to cover all consumer products within one simpler and more consistent safety regime. Consequently, there is no further need for section 10 of the 1987 Act and this is repealed by the Regulations.
