These Regulations amend the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2008 (S.I. 2008/37) (“the principal Regulations”), which implement European Parliament and Council Directive 2002/95/EC on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (OJ L 37, 13.3.2003, p. 19). Regulation 2(3) and (4)(a) correct drafting errors in the principal Regulations. Regulation 2(5) and (6) make minor revisions to the enforcement procedures relating to the issuing of compliance and enforcement notices. Regulation 2(4)(b) deletes regulation 13(4) and (5) of the principal Regulations. The Regulations are not expected to have any material effect on either the costs or benefits associated with the principal Regulations. An Impact Assessment in respect of the principal Regulations is available and a copy can be obtained from the Environment and Technical Regulations Directorate, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform, 1 Victoria Street, London SW1H 0ET.
