Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999

Section 6 and Schedules 2 and 3

29.The Act provides for the repeal of Part I of the 1990 Act (subject to what is said below in relation to Northern Ireland), which will be superseded by the new pollution control regime set up under section 2 of the Act, and for a number of consequential and minor amendments and repeals to other legislation to take account of the replacement of the Part I regimes by the new regime. These include an amendment to section 8 of the 1990 Act to enable one regulator to recover its costs from charges imposed by another regulator during the 8-year transitional period before the repeal of Part I of the 1990 Act. (Some consequential amendments are being left to be made under the regulations made under section 2 because their precise terms will turn on what is in the regulations.) The amendments in the Prevention of Oil Pollution Act 1971 and the Merchant Shipping Act 1995 take account of the consolidation effected by the 1995 Act, and the amendment in section 77 of the 1990 Act is consequential on section 4 of the Act.
