Safety of Nuclear Installations Directive 2009/71/Euratom—snapshot

Brexit impact

11 pm (GMT) on 31 December 2020 marked 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 came 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.

On 24 December 2020, the European Commission and UK government announced an agreement in principle on the legal terms of the future UK-EU relationship. Announced just one week before IP completion day, the EU-UK Trade and Co-operation Agreement (TCA), and associated agreements came at the eleventh hour, leaving little time to put in place the necessary legal and practical arrangements to make the deal fully operational. The deal was signed on 30 December 2020 and approved by the UK Parliament (along with implementing legislation). Due to the time pressure, the UK and EU agreed that the deal would apply provisionally from 1 January 2021, pending full ratification by the EU. The provisional TCA and associated agreements, declarations and regulations were published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) on 31 December 2020. Following ratification and final legal-linguistic revision, the finalised versions are expected to be published in the OJEU
