Commentary

 

These Regulations are proposed to be made by the UK Government pursuant to section 8(1) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018.

 

These Regulations are being made in order to address failures of retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies arising from the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

 

The Regulations amend domestic legislation that implements EU ionising radiation legislation to ensure it continues to be operable after the withdrawal of the UK from the EU. The United Kingdom is leaving the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom Treaty) at the same time as it is leaving the EU.  

 

 

Legal Advisers make the following comments in relation to the Welsh Government’s statement dated 7 December 2018 regarding the effect of these Regulations:

The statement does not refer to The Nuclear Reactors (Environmental Impact Assessment for Decommissioning) Regulations 1999, which are referred to in the Explanatory Memorandum and extend to the United Kingdom.

 

The above summary and the content of the Explanatory Memorandum to these Regulations confirm their effect.

 

Legal Advisers do not consider that any significant issues arise under paragraph 8 of the Memorandum on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill and the Establishment of Common Frameworks in relation to these Regulations.

 

Legal Advisers have not identified any legal reason to seek a consent motion under Standing Order 30A.10 in relation to these Regulations.
