These Regulations give effect to the amendments made by Council Directive 93/95/EEC of 29th October 1993 (O.J.No.L276, 9.11.93, p. 11) amending Directive 89/686/EEC on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to personal protective equipment (O.J.No.L399, 30.12.89, p.18), which was implemented by the Personal Protective Equipment (EC Directive) Regulations 1992 and applied by the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992.
The effect of the amendments is—

(b)to disapply the principal Regulations until the end of June 1995 from personal protective equipment which complies with the law in force on 30th June 1992.
