Made

3rd April 2018

Coming into force in accordance with regulation 1

The Secretary of State is designated for the purposes of section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972(1) in relation to information society services(2).

The Secretary of State makes the following Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by that section.

In accordance with paragraph 2(2) of Schedule 2 to the European Communities Act 1972, as modified by section 143(2)(a) of the Coroners and Justice Act 2009(3), a draft of these Regulations was laid before Parliament and approved by a resolution of each House of Parliament.

(1)

1972 c. 68. Section 2(2) was amended by section 27 of the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006 (c. 51) and section 3 of, and Part 1 of the Schedule to, the European Union (Amendment) Act 2008 (c. 7). The powers conferred by section 2(2) were extended, in particular, by virtue of the amendment of section 1(2) by section 1 of the European Economic Area Act 1993 (c. 51). They were modified by section 45(4) of the Criminal Proceedings etc. (Reform) (Scotland) Act 2007 (asp 6) and section 143(1) of the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 (c. 25). Under section 57(1) of the Scotland Act 1998 (c. 46), despite the transfer to the Scottish Ministers of functions in relation to implementing obligations under EU law in respect of devolved matters, the function of the Secretary of State in relation to implementing those obligations continues to be exercisable as regards Scotland.
