Brexit Law and EU Retained Law (Cardinal Environment Services)

I have posted before that subscribers to Cardinal Environment EHS Legislation Registers & Law Checklists have added to their systems, a continually compiled Brexit Law List.

The European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 retains EU law enacted at the exit date, and section 8 of the 2018 Act gives powers to make adjustments in order that this EU Retained Law will operate in the UK after the exit date. These adjustments will be made via Statutory Instruments (Regulations) issued with brackets (EU Exit) in the title, generally. The Brexit Law List compiles OHS and ENV related (EU Exit) Instruments, and others.

It is clear that at least some of the (EU Exit) Instruments amend actual EU Regulations as they apply in the UK. To avoid confusion, we will not consolidate those amendments into the base document, until further on in the Brexit process. Instead we will show the (EU Exit) instrument beneath the EU Regulation as a companion, when we populate out the documents into the Registers from the Brexit Law List.

In due course, further on in the Brexit process, these Retained EU Laws will become England Retained EU Law (consolidated) and ditto other national variants.

An example of an (EU Exit) instrument is here.
