Section 6 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (EU(W)A 2018) provides that retained EU law which has not been modified on or after IP completion day (and questions as to its validity, meaning or effect) is to be interpreted according to retained case law and retained general principles of EU law so far as it is relevant to any matter before the court or tribunal.
Retained EU law which has been modified after IP completion day can still be interpreted in accordance with retained case law and retained general principles of EU law provided that/to the extent that to do so is ‘consistent with the intention of the modifications’.
After IP completion day, a UK court or tribunal may also ‘have regard’ to anything done on or after IP completion day by the European Court, another EU entity or the EU so far as it is relevant to any matter before the court or tribunal.
