The Shipments of Radioactive Substances (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

This instrument corrects deficiencies in the operation of retained EU law within Euratom Regulation 1493/93 (the “Regulation”) on the shipment of radioactive substances between EU Member States. The Regulation requires that shipments of radioactive sources between Member States are controlled and documented. On exit day, the Regulation will automatically become retained EU law through the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (the “EUWA”) but will be inoperable. This instrument revokes the Regulation and replaces it with similar provisions so that the retained deficiencies are fixed, and the Regulation can continue to operate as it does now insofar as possible.
