Scottish Statutory Instruments
16th March 2011
Coming into force
27th March 2011
The Scottish Ministers make the following Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by section 2 of the Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999 (“the 1999 Act”)(1) and paragraph 1A of Schedule 2 to the European Communities Act 1972 (“the 1972 Act”)(2) and all other powers enabling them to do so.
In accordance with section 2(4) of the 1999 Act, they have consulted with the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, such bodies or persons appearing to them to be representative of the interests of local government, industry, agriculture and small businesses respectively as they consider appropriate, and such other bodies or persons as they consider appropriate.
These Regulations make provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) of the 1972 Act, and it appears to the Scottish Ministers that it is expedient for the reference in regulation 6 to Commission Decision 2000/532/EC(3) to be a reference to that instrument as amended from time to time.
In accordance with section 2(8) of the 1999 Act, a draft of this instrument has been laid before and approved by resolution of the Scottish Parliament.
