Waste permits, exemptions and registrations—framework

Brexit

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 began to take effect across the UK’s legal regime.

Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, SI 2019/39

The Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, SI 2019/39, effective from implementation period (IP) completion date, make minor amendments to the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016, SI 2016/1154 to ensure their continued operation once the UK leaves the EU. They amend and update several definitions and introduce a new Schedule 1A into the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016 to update interpretation of the EU Directives listed in EPR 2016, SI 2016/1154, reg 3 including the Waste Framework Directive.
