The European Institutions and Consular Protection (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

This statutory instrument revokes, amends or makes savings in respect of Directly Effective Treaty Rights arising from Articles of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and its Protocols. It also makes amendments or revocations in respect of retained direct EU law which relates to the functioning of institutions and bodies of the European Union and the application of its rules in EU legislation. This is to help make the UK state book coherent, to facilitate the smoothest possible transition and to ensure the UK’s legal system effectively functions after exit day, in a no deal scenario.
