Rules and Regulations Governing the Production, Processing, and Sale of Ice Cream, Frozen Desserts, and Similar Products [2 VAC 5 ‑ 510]
Amending 2VAC5-510 based on recommendations of the Attorney General’s Government and Regulatory Reform Task Force
Action 2559
General Information
Action Summary The proposed amendments to the existing regulation consolidate thirty-one separate sections into fifteen sections and repeal one section to reduce the sheer size of the regulation and make it more user-friendly. Some sections have been amended to use the same words and terms throughout and numerous citations to requirements have been updated to properly identify reference documents and citations to specific sections of the Code of Virginia to make the regulation more easily understood. The changes made are not substantive changes to the requirements of the regulation and do not create any new requirements or modify any existing requirements. The one section that was repealed is currently unenforceable because it was pre-empted by changes to the federal standard of identity for ice cream and the National Labeling and Education Act.
