Key publications on possible implications for environmental law

More than 90% of environmental law is estimated to have derived from EU legislation and so the implications of Brexit on environmental law will be very significant.

A number of government departments, committees in parliament, advisory committees and independent parliamentary bodies, academic institutions and environmental law associations, industry bodies and NGOs, as well as the European Commission, have carried out research into these possible implications and this Practice Note lists some of the most significant publications.

Brexit impact: 11 pm (GMT) on 31 December 2020 marks the end of the Brexit transition/implementation period entered into following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. At this point in time (referred to in UK law as ‘IP completion day’), key transitional arrangements come to an end and significant changes begin to take effect across the UK’s legal regime. Any changes relevant to this content will be set out below. For further guidance, see Practice Note: Brexit—impact on environmental law and News Analysis: Brexit Bulletin—key updates, research tips and resources.

For general information on Brexit and the details of the withdrawal process, see Practice Note: Brexit—exiting the EU under Article 50 [Archived] and Overview: Brexit—overview.
