The Secretary of State is a Minister designated(1) for the purposes of section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972(2) (“section 2(2)”) in respect of measures relating to the restriction of the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.

These Regulations make provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) and it appears to the Secretary of State that it is expedient for the reference in regulation 5 to the Annex to Directive 2002/95/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment(3) to be construed as a reference to that Annex as amended from time to time.

The Secretary of State, in exercise of the powers conferred on him by section 2(2), makes the following Regulations.

1972 c.68, as amended by numerous subsequent Acts; however, the only amendments relevant for the purposes of these Regulations are those introduced by Part 3 of the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006 (c.51).
