The Road Vehicles and Non-Road Mobile Machinery (Type-Approval) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019

Made

26th March 2019

Coming into force in accordance with regulation 1

The Secretary of State makes these Regulations 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 8(1) of, and paragraph 21(b) of Schedule 7 to, the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (“the 2018 Act”)(2).

The Secretary of State is designated for the purposes of section 2(2) of the 1972 Act in relation to the regulation of the type, description, construction or equipment of vehicles, and of components of vehicles, and in particular any vehicle type-approval scheme(3).

These Regulations make provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) of the 1972 Act and it appears to the Secretary of State that it is expedient for references, in the amendments made by Part 3 of these Regulations, to Regulation (EU) No 167/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the approval and market surveillance of agricultural and forestry vehicles(4) to be construed as references to a version of that Regulation as it may be amended from time to time.

In accordance with paragraph 1(3) of Schedule 7 to the 2018 Act, a draft of this instrument has been laid before Parliament and approved by a resolution of each House of Parliament.

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) in order to address failures of retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies (in particular under paragraphs (a), (c) and (g) of section 8(2)) arising from the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

These Regulations make temporary amendments to legislation in the field of type approval for road vehicles and non-road mobile machinery and, in particular, provide for an interim arrangement allowing the Secretary of State or Northern Ireland Department to issue type approval certificates to holders of EU type approval granted other than in the United Kingdom and (in respect of road vehicles) for those type approval certificates to be the basis for issue of certificates of conformity used for the purposes of vehicle registration. Part 2 amends primary legislation, Part 4 amends Northern Ireland legislation, Part 5 amends subordinate legislation, and Part 6 amends retained direct EU legislation.

These Regulations also make amendments to Northern Ireland legislation to correct the transposition of Directive 2007/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 September 2007 establishing a framework for the approval of motor vehicles and their trailers and of systems, components and separate technical units intended for such vehicles (OJ No L263, 9.10.2007, p 1). In particular, Part 3 substitutes a new definition of “EC certificate of conformity” into the Road Traffic (Northern Ireland) Order 1981 (S.I. 1981/154 (N.I. 1)) to mirror that applying in Great Britain under section 85 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 (c.52).

Part 7 provides for the interim arrangements for type approval set out in these Regulations to cease to have effect two years after exit day and for the validity of any type-approval issued before that point to be unaffected.

The net costs imposed on business, the voluntary sector and the public sector by these Regulations have been assessed as being less than £5m in any year and therefore a full impact assessment has not been prepared.

An Explanatory Memorandum has been prepared and is available alongside this instrument at www.legislation.gov.uk.
