EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations are made in exercise of the powers conferred by section 8(1) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (c.16) (“the Act”) and make amendments to the Ionising Radiation (Basic Safety Standards) (Miscellaneous Provisions) Regulations 2018 (“the Regulations”) in order to address failures of retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies (in particular under section 8(2)(g) of the Act) arising from the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

Regulation 2(2) removes the cross reference in the Regulations to the definition of “orphan source” in the Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom laying down basic safety standards for protection against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising radiation and repealing Council Directive 89/618/ Euratom, 90/641/ Euratom, 96/29/ Euratom, 97/43/ Euratom and 2003/122/ Euratom (“the Directive”) and inserts a new definition of “orphan source”.

Regulation 2(3) amends regulation 6(4)(c) of the Regulations, removing the cross reference to Article 102 of the Directive and inserting a requirement that management strategies are to be developed and implemented taking into account the requirements of the new Schedule.

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