Financial services legislation under the EU (Withdrawal) Act 2018

HM Treasury’s programme of secondary legislation to ensure that the UK continues to have a functioning financial services regulatory regime in all scenarios, when the UK leaves the EU in March 2019.

This collection sets out how HM Treasury intends to use the powers under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, to ensure that the UK will have a functioning financial services regulatory regime in all scenarios, when the UK leaves the EU in March 2019.

This work involves making statutory instruments (SIs) under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act to prevent, remedy or mitigate any failure of EU law to operate effectively after the UK leaves the EU. These SIs are not intended to make policy changes, other than those necessary to reflect the UK’s new position outside the EU, and to smooth the transition to this situation.

This page contains links to the latest announcements, general approach papers and SIs that have been published in draft in advance of laying before Parliament.
