Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

Section 113 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (“the 1990 Act”) confers power to make and from time to time revise a scheme of fees payable in respect of applications for consents under Part VI (genetically modified organisms) of the 1990 Act and charges in respect of the subsistence of such consents.

These Regulations amend section 113 of the 1990 Act so as to provide that in making a scheme under that section Scottish Ministers may, with the consent of the Secretary of State, provide for any functions under the scheme to be performed by a Minister of the Crown or government department where Scottish Ministers consider it expedient to do so in relation to the implementation of Council Directive 90/220/EEC on the deliberate release into the environment of genetically modified organisms.

1972 c. 68; section 2(2) was amended by the Scotland Act 1998 (c. 46), Schedule 8 paragraph 15(3). The function conferred upon a Minister of the Crown under section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972, insofar as within devolved competence, was transferred to the Scottish Ministers by virtue of section 53 of the Scotland Act 1998.
