Section 20 – Regulations

63.Section 20(1) enables the Scottish Ministers to make, by way of regulations, such supplemental, incidental, consequential, transitional, transitory or saving provision in connection with the Act, as they consider necessary or expedient. Such regulations may elaborate on any aspect of the process set out in sections 1 to 17 of the Act, and may also confer functions on authorities or the Scottish Ministers. If such provision involves textually amending an Act it will be subject to affirmative procedure in the Scottish Parliament, otherwise to negative procedure (as set out in section 20(6)(b) and (c)).

64.Under section 20(2) regulations may modify schedule 1 or 2 by adding or removing an entry, or altering the terms of any entry in those schedules. Any such modification of schedule 1 or 2 will be subject to affirmative procedure in the Scottish Parliament (as set out in section 20(6)(a)). The regulation powers in both section 20(1) and (2) include power to make different provision for different purposes.
