Document title: The Electricity and Gas etc. (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019
Summary: Amends primary and secondary laws to address inoperabilities caused by the UK’s exit from the EU. The role of the European Commission and jurisdiction of the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators will be removed and UK energy regulators’ statutory objectives amended to reflect the UK’s exit from the EU and revocation of the Agency Regulation which sets out the rules governing ACER and would not be applicable in a non-EU context. Failure to remove these inoperabilities would create significant uncertainty and inefficiency in the operation of Great Britain and Northern Ireland’s market regulation should the UK leave the EU without a withdrawal agreement.
