The Ionising Radiation (Basic Safety Standards) (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

This instrument intends to address deficiencies in the operation of retained European Union (“EU”) law as provided for by the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. Specifically, this instrument is intended to remedy two deficiencies in the Ionising Radiation (Basic Safety Standards) (Miscellaneous Provisions) Regulations 2018 (IRR (BSSD) 2018). These arise due to cross references to provisions in the European Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom , commonly referred to as the Basic Safety Standards Directive (“the Directive”) which will no longer be operable upon the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the EU. The United Kingdom is leaving the Euratom Treaty on the same date as it is leaving the EU.
