The INSPIRE (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

This instrument amends The INSPIRE Regulations 2009 (SI 2009/3157) which incorporated into UK law Directive 2007/2/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council. The directive established a European spatial data infrastructure (SDI) by requiring member states to operate national SDIs. The amendments are being made to enable the continued operability of the INSPIRE Regulations as retained EU law under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, following the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.
