This Post Implementation Review (PIR) considers:

  • the extent to which the Regulations are working
  • whether Government intervention is still required
  • whether the Regulations and the way they are implemented are the most appropriate approach to meeting the policy aim

The Directive is implemented by the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008, which were amended by the Supply of Machinery (Safety) (Amendment) Regulations 2011 to extend the scope to include certain pesticides equipment.
