The below summary sets out Brexit preparations and contingency plans in relation to onshoring EU rules for PRIIPs after Brexit.
The PRIIPs Exit Regulations are part of HM Treasury’s programme of statutory instruments (SIs) under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (EU(W)A 2018) dealing with contingency preparations for a no-deal Brexit. The PRIIPs Exit Regulations form part of the process of domesticating EU law to ensure legal continuity following the UK’s exit from the EU.
EU(W)A 2018 was subsequently amended by the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2020 (EU(WA)A 2020), which makes provision for the ratification and implementation in domestic law of the Withdrawal Agreement between the UK and the EU.
The Withdrawal Agreement sets out the arrangements for the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.
