The European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (Consequential Modifications and Repeals) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019

The purpose of this instrument is to ensure that the UK statute book works coherently and effectively following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. It clarifies how certain terms, including EU-related definitions, should be interpreted in domestic legislation on or after exit day. This instrument also clarifies how non-ambulatory cross-references to EU legislation should be read where such references relate to a time before exit day.
