EU Exit Update

6th February 2020 RIAMS

The UK finally left the European Union on 31 January 2020. As the UK left with a deal in place, the implications on European legislation were relatively minor because the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 converted EU legislation into domestic law. The legal rules remain largely unchanged and references to EU legislation remain valid.

Procedures and notices within RIAMS remain relatively unchanged; however, where these documents refer to EU legislation we have inserted some details, converting them into UK legislation.

During the transitional period and beyond, further changes will be made as and when the EU regulations, directives and decisions currently incorporated into UK legislation are replaced with new UK laws. This replacement process may maintain the existing rules and requirements; however, the opportunity is available for the government to amend or abolish any of these requirements. We will keep abreast of the changes as they are implemented and ensure that the RIAMS materials are kept up to date.

One issue that users may need to be aware of is that on 31 January, the European Communities Act 1972 (ECA) was repealed and replaced by the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. This may have implications in relation to officer authorisations if they make specific reference to the ECA. It is worth checking officer authorisations, as they may need to be updated.
