These Regulations are made in exercise of the powers in the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (c.16) in order to address failures of domestic legislation to operate effectively and other deficiencies (in particular, under paragraphs (a), (d) and (g) of section 8(2) of the Act) arising from the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

These Regulations make amendments to subordinate legislation which applies to Northern Ireland that is concerned with the records, identification and movement of cattle, sheep, goats and pigs.

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