Consumer Protection (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

This instrument: a) makes amendments to EU derived consumer protection legislation which are necessary as a result of the decision to leave the European Union. This is to ensure that the legislation continues to operate effectively at the point the United Kingdom withdraws from the European Union; b) revokes the EU Online Dispute Resolution Regulation; c) makes amendments to EU derived consumer protection legislation to replace obsolete cross-references to EU law. These out-dated references were in place before the decision to leave the European Union and correcting them now ensures that the law will function properly after exit day.
