The Secretary of State and Welsh Ministers make this Order in exercise of the powers conferred by section 2(2) of, and paragraph 1A of Schedule 2 to, the European Communities Act 1972 (“the 1972 Act”)(1), and by section 22(5) of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981(2).

The Secretary of State has been designated for the purposes of section 2(2) of the 1972 Act in relation to the environment(3), and the Welsh Ministers have been designated for those purposes in relation to the prevention and remedy of environmental damage(4).

This Order makes provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) of the 1972 Act and it appears to the Secretary of State and the Welsh Ministers that it is expedient for the references to the list of invasive alien species of Union concern adopted by the Commission in accordance with Regulation (EU) No. 1143/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the prevention and management of the introduction and spread of invasive alien species(5) to be construed as references to that list as amended from time to time.
