The Environment (Miscellaneous Amendments and Revocations) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019

This instrument makes a number of miscellaneous amendments and revocations to ensure certain environmental laws function legally after our exit from the European Union (“EU”). This is also acting as a ‘wash up’ SI to make any additional amendments that are either consequential or correcting of other EU Exit regulations, to make them operable. Regulations 2 to 7 make minor amendments to provisions of other Regulations made under section 8(1) of the European Union (Withdrawal) 2018 Act, relating to wildlife, environmental permitting, chemicals, water resources and pesticides. Regulation 8 amends retained direct EU legislation relating to wildlife, and regulations 9 to 11 amend retained direct EU legislation relating to pesticides. Regulation 12(1) and the Schedule revoke various retained direct EU legislation relating to pesticides, eco-management and audit and ecolabelling, and regulation 12(2) contains a saving provision in relation to some of the revoked legislation relating to pesticides.
