Energy Act 2013

Section 117: Application of Part 3

506.This section sets out that Her Majesty may, by Order in Council, extend the application of Part 3 of this Act outside the United Kingdom. This power is necessary because some aspects of Part 3 (and nuclear regulations) will apply to acts and things done outside the United Kingdom as a consequence of nuclear material being transported outside of the United Kingdom. The power gives flexibility to amend the application of Part 3 to ensure that the provisions of this Part apply to persons, premises, activities, articles, substances or other matters outside the United Kingdom just as they would if they were within the United Kingdom.
