EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations are made in part in exercise of the powers conferred by the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (c. 16) in order to address failures of retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies (in particular section 8(2)(a), (b), (d) and (g)) arising from the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. They are also made in part to amend domestic legislation that is out of date.

Part 2 makes amendments to provisions in secondary legislation on fertilisers and ammonium nitrate material that are out of date. Regulation 2 amends the Fertilisers Regulations 1991 (S.I. 1991/2197) to remove references to EEC fertilisers and EC fertilisers, since the EU fertilisers regime is dealt with in other legislation. Regulation 3 amends the Ammonium Nitrate Materials (High Nitrogen Content) Safety Regulations 2003 (S.I. 2003/1082) and regulation 4 amends the EC Fertilisers (England and Wales) Regulations 2006 (S.I. 2006/2486).

The remainder of the Regulations makes amendments arising from the withdrawal from the European Union to legislation regulating fertilisers and ammonium nitrate material. Part 3 amends retained direct EU legislation and Part 4 amends primary and secondary legislation.

An impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no, or no significant, impact on the private or voluntary sector is foreseen.

(1)

1972 c. 68. Section 2(2) was amended by the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006 (c. 51), section 27(1)(a) and the European Union (Amendment) Act 2008 (c. 7), the Schedule, Part 1. It is prospectively repealed by the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (c. 16), section 1 from exit day (see section 20 of that Act). The function of the former Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of making regulations under section 2(2) was transferred to the Secretary of State by S.I. 2002/794. Under section 57(1) of the Scotland Act 1998 (c. 46), despite the transfer to Scottish Ministers of functions in relation to implementing obligations under EU law in relation to devolved matters, the Secretary of State retains power to exercise such functions as regards Scotland. Under paragraph 5 of Schedule 3 to the Government of Wales Act 2006 (c. 32), despite the transfer to the Welsh Ministers of functions in relation to implementing obligations under EU law in relation to devolved matters, the Secretary of State retains power to exercise such functions as regards Wales.
