EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order designates two European directives for the purposes of paragraph 20(1)(b) of Schedule 1 to the Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999 (c.24). This allows regulations to be made under that Act which make provision corresponding or similar to any provision made, or capable of being made, under section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972 (c.68) in connection with either directive.

An impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the public, private or voluntary sectors is foreseen.

(1)

1999 c.24; paragraph 20(2)(c) was amended by S.I. 2011/1043. Functions of the Secretary of State under this paragraph, so far as exercisable in relation to Wales, were transferred to the National Assembly for Wales (except in relation to offshore oil and gas exploration and exploitation) by virtue of article 3 of the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 2005 (S.I. 2005/1958). Those functions were then transferred to the Welsh Ministers by virtue of paragraph 30 of Schedule 11 to the Government of Wales Act 2006 (c.32).

(2)

2006 c.32. Section 158(1) defines “Wales” as including the sea adjacent to Wales out as far as the seaward boundary of the territorial sea. Section 158(3) (as substituted by section 43(3) of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 (c.23)) makes provision for the determination of any boundary between waters which are to be treated as parts of the sea adjacent to Wales and those which are not. The boundary between the sea adjacent to Wales and that adjacent to England is partly determined by article 6 of, and Schedule 3 to, S.I. 1999/672. By virtue of paragraph 26 of Schedule 11 to the Government of Wales Act 2006, S.I. 1999/672 continues to have effect.

(3)

1998 c.46. The boundaries between waters which are to be treated as internal waters or territorial sea of the United Kingdom adjacent to Scotland and those which are not are set out in S.I. 1999/1126.

(4)

OJ No L 312, 22.11.2008, p.3, as amended by Commission Regulation (EU) No 1357/2014 (OJ No L 365, 19.12.2014, p.89).

(5)

OJ No L 197, 24.7.2012, p.38.

(7)

OJ No L 37, 13.2.2003, p.24, repealed by Directive 2012/19/EU.

(8)

Article 2(a) re-designates Directive 2008/98/EC as amended by Commission Regulation (EU) No 1357/2014 for the purposes of paragraph 20(1)(b) of Schedule 1 to the Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999. Accordingly, the existing designation of Directive 2008/98/EC is revoked.
