Energy Act 2013

Section 114: Transitional provision etc

493.This section allows for the Secretary of State by order to make provisions for transitional arrangements which appear to him or her to be appropriate in consequence of, or in connection with, Part 3. Specifically, such arrangements can include amending legislation made before the end of the session in which this Act is passed, and can include provision treating relevant existing regulations as ‘relevant statutory provisions’, regulations made under section 85 (inquiries) or under section 101 (fees) (see subsection 2(b)). Only regulations which are relevant to the ONR’s purposes or fees payable in respect of functions relating to them are within scope of this provision (see subsection (3)). This provision will allow the statutory ONR to continue to enforce these existing regulations or charge fees under them for a transitional period, to ensure continuity following its creation if there is not time to amend or replace the regulations in advance of that event.
