Statutory Instruments

2019 No. 1417

Environmental Protection, England And Wales

The Pollution Prevention and Control (Designation of Directives) (England and Wales) Order 2019

Made

29th October 2019

Coming into force in accordance with article 1(1)

The Secretary of State and the Welsh Ministers make this Order in exercise of the powers conferred by section 7(9)(a) of, and paragraph 20(2)(c) of Schedule 1 to, the Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999 F1.

F11999 c.24; paragraph 20(2)(c) was amended by S.I. 2018/942. Functions of the Secretary of State under this paragraph, so far as exercisable in relation to Wales, were transferred to the National Assembly for Wales (except in relation to offshore oil and gas exploration and exploitation) by virtue of article 3 of S.I. 2005/1958. Those functions were then transferred to the Welsh Ministers by virtue of paragraph 30 of Schedule 11 to the Government of Wales Act 2006 (c.32).

Citation, commencement, extent and applicationE+W

1.—(1) This Order may be cited as the Pollution Prevention and Control (Designation of Directives) (England and Wales) Order 2019 and comes into force on the day after the day on which it is made.

(2) This Order extends to England and Wales.

(3) This Order applies in relation to—

(a)England and the sea adjacent to England out as far as the seaward boundary of the territorial sea; and

(b)Wales, within the meaning given by section 158 of the Government of Wales Act 2006 F2.

(4) For the purpose of paragraph (3)(a), the sea adjacent to England is so much of the sea adjacent to Great Britain as—

(a)is not the sea adjacent to Scotland; and

(b)does not form part of Wales.

(5) In paragraph (4)(a), the sea adjacent to Scotland has the same meaning as the internal waters and territorial sea of the United Kingdom adjacent to Scotland has by virtue of section 126(2) of the Scotland Act 1998 F3.

F22006 c.32. Section 158(1) defines “Wales” as including the sea adjacent to Wales out as far as the seaward boundary of the territorial sea. Section 158(3) (as substituted by section 43(3) of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 (c.23)) makes provision for the determination of any boundary between waters which are to be treated as parts of the sea adjacent to Wales and those which are not. The boundary between the sea adjacent to Wales and that adjacent to England is partly determined by article 6 of, and Schedule 3 to, S.I. 1999/672. By virtue of paragraph 26 of Schedule 11 to the Government of Wales Act 2006, S.I. 1999/672 continues to have effect.

F31998 c.46. The boundaries between waters which are to be treated as internal waters or territorial sea of the United Kingdom adjacent to Scotland, and those which are not, are set out in S.I. 1999/1126.
