Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

at docks will be altered on November 1. New regulations will then come into force dealing with handling of food, carriers' premises, cold stores, and certain types of storage premises. Most of the provisions of the new regulations come into force on November 1 but some, which may involve alterations of premises and equipment, will be delayed until May 1, 1961.

The regulations—Food Hygiene (Docks, ' Carriers, etc.) Regulation's, 1960 (S.I. 1961, No. 1602)--will be enforced by local councils and port health authorities.

The matters dealt with are similar to those in the general Food Hygiene Regulations, which have applied since the end of 1955 to most types of food premises. There are, however, a number of detailed changes. There are four major differences.

First, a distinction is made between the obligations of people allocating accommodation for food handling and those of employers who occupy the premises. Second, the obligations of dockers and porters with regard to cleanliness are limited to occasions when they are handling food which is not packed so as to prevent its coming into contact with outside surfaces. Third, less stringent requirements will be brought into effect relating to structure, washing and sanitary facilities. Fourth, the primary obligations with regard to structural requirements of the premises have been placed on the owner instead of the occupier.
