UPDATE (Wednesday 27 June) : Royal Assent was given yesterday (26th June), the Act is now published. I will add it to the Cardinal EHS Legislation Registers.
The Act is here.
I posted before about this key UK Brexit Bill. The Bill is now ready for Royal Assent.
When it is available in its Act form, I will add it to the Cardinal EHS Legislation Registers as a Link to UK Brexit Bills. I will put this Link to UK Brexit Acts on the top right hand side, linking from both the Environment Registers index page, and the OHS Registers index page. The Link is not yet there.
The purpose of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill is to repeal the European Communities Act 1972. It will also make other provisions in connection with the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. The European Communities Act 1972 was the principal means by which EU law was given effect in the UK.
The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill will first be an Act (after receipt of Royal Assent), and then commenced by separate enactment(s). It will not apply until it is commenced. Commencement could be in sections. Until the relevant section(s) are commenced, the 1972 Act remains in force.
