(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations are made in exercise of the powers in section 8(1) of, and paragraph 21 of Schedule 7 to, the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (c. 16) in order to address failures in retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies (in particular under section 8(2)(b), (d), (g) and paragraph 21 of Schedule 7 to, the Act) arising from the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

These Regulations make amendments to retained direct EU legislation in the field of computer reservation systems. They replace the European Commission as regulator with the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority and the Court of Justice of the European Union as appeal court with the High Court of England and Wales.
