The Inquiries and Coroners (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

This instrument amends references to “obligations” and “enforceable obligations” under EU law in the Inquiries Act 2005 and the Coroners and Justice Act 2009, and amends references to “community obligations” in the Coroners Act (Northern Ireland) 1959, to ensure reference is now made to “retained EU obligations” and to “retained enforceable EU obligations” following the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union. It also amends s43 of the Inquiries Act 2005 to provide a definition of ‘retained enforceable EU obligation’ for the purposes of this SI with reference to the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018.
