The Electricity Network Codes and Guidelines (System Operation and Connection) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019

This instrument is one of a package of statutory instruments that will ensure that legislation governing the UK’s energy systems will function effectively in the event that the UK leaves the European Union (‘EU’) without a withdrawal agreement in place. It amends two retained EU regulations relating to electricity system operation to ensure that they will function effectively once incorporated in domestic law by the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. It further revokes three retained EU regulations on the grounds that they would be inoperable if incorporated into domestic law.

Sifting committees’ recommendation.

The sifting committees disagreed with the government and recommended that this statutory instrument needs to be debated in parliament.
