EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

Schedule 23 to the Civil Partnership Act 2004 makes provisions for certain procedures to be followed where a civil partnership is to be formed in the United Kingdom. Paragraph 4(1)(a) of Schedule 23 provides that where a civil partnership is to be formed in England and Wales, notice must be given to a specified registration authority. The Immigration (Procedure for formation of Civil Partnerships) Regulations 2011 specify the relevant registration authorities within England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

These Regulations amend the list of registration authorities in the Schedule to the Immigration (Procedure for formation of Civil Partnerships) Regulations 2011 by replacing reference to Cardiganshire North with Ceredigion. This is to reflect the amalgamation of the three registration districts of Cardiganshire Central, Cardiganshire North and Cardiganshire South into the single registration district of Ceredigion.

A full regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen
