EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

1.  These Regulations amend paragraph (2A) of regulation 22 of the Control of Major Accident Hazard Regulations 1999 (S.I. 1999/743) (“COMAH”) which was inserted by the Health and Safety (Fees) Regulations 2008 (S.I. 2008/736). The amendments correct errors in sub-paragraphs (a) and (b) of that paragraph. The words “installation” and “safety case” should not have been referred to and “establishment” and “safety report” are now referred to instead. There is no retrospective effect to these regulations.

2.  Paragraph (2A) of regulation 22 of COMAH enables the Health and Safety Executive to recover fees for the enforcement of general health and safety functions at certain COMAH establishments that are required to have a safety report.

3.  No Impact Assessment has been prepared for this instrument which is for making corrections to reflect what was intended S.I. 2008/736 should provide for.

1974 c.37; section 43(6) is amended by the Employment Protection Act 1975 (c. 71), section 116 and Schedule 15, paragraph 12 and S.I. 2002/794 and 1998/960.
