EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends various enactments to effect changes as a consequence of the amendment of Annex II to Directive 2008/98/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on waste and repealing certain Directives (“the Waste Framework Directive”) (OJ L 312, 22.11.2008, p.3) by Commission Directive (EU) 2015/1127 (“the 2015 Directive”) (OJ L 184, 11.07.2015, p.13).

Article 3(15) of the Waste Framework Directive provides a definition of “recovery” of waste and makes reference to Annex II, which sets out a non-exhaustive list of recovery operations. The 2015 Directive amends Annex II to the Waste Framework Directive. The amendment makes provision for a climate correction factor to be applied to the energy efficiency formula used to calculate whether an incineration facility dedicated to the processing of municipal solid waste meets the energy efficiency threshold for being considered a recovery operation (operation “R1” in Annex II).

No business and regulatory impact assessment has been prepared for this Order as no significant change is foreseen to the existing impacts upon business, charities or voluntary bodies.

2009 c.23 (“the 2009 Act”). The 2009 Act executively devolved various functions to the Scottish Ministers in relation to marine licensing in the Scottish Offshore Region (as defined in section 322(1) of that Act). Section 74 of that Act is relied on to make the amendment to S.S.I. 2011/57. In accordance with section 113 of the 2009 Act, the Scottish Ministers are the “appropriate licensing authority” for the Scottish Offshore Region for the purposes of section 74.

1972 c.68 (“the 1972 Act”). Section 2(2) was amended by the Scotland Act 1998 (c.46) (“the 1998 Act”), Schedule 8, paragraph 15(3) (which was amended by section 27(4) of the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006 (c.51) (“the 2006 Act”)). Section 2(2) was also amended by section 27(1)(a) of the 2006 Act and by the European Union (Amendment) Act 2008 (c.7), Schedule, Part 1. The functions conferred upon the Minister of the Crown under section 2(2), so far as they are exercisable within devolved competence, were transferred to the Scottish Ministers by virtue of section 53 of the 1998 Act. The power in section 2(2) of the 1972 Act is relied on for all the amendments made by this Order except for the amendment to S.S.I. 2011/57.
