The Product Safety and Metrology etc. (Amendment) (Northern Ireland) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020

Jurisdiction: Northern Ireland

Commencement: 31st December 2020



Applies to all of the above legislation

These Amendment Regulations make various minor technical changes to the principal Regulations insofar as they apply to Northern Ireland (the amendments are not applicable in Great Britain). The Amendments are designed to ensure that Northern Ireland continues to implement EU rules, as agreed in the Northern Ireland Protocol which was part of the EU Withdrawal Agreement. Various references and terminology in the principal Regulations are therefore amended to reflect that Northern Ireland (but not the rest of the UK) continues to apply EU rules.
