The Export of Objects of Cultural Interest (Control) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

The instrument is being made using the powers in the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 to remedy deficiencies in retained EU law arising from the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the EU. It does so by revoking Regulation (EC) No 116/2009 and Regulation (EU) No 1081/2012 on the export of cultural goods (“the EU Regulations”). The instrument is also being made under the Export Control Act 2002 to amend definitions in the Export of Objects of Cultural Interest (Control) Order 2003 (“the 2003 Order”).
