UK Common Frameworks

Background

Following EU exit, the four UK administrations agreed to maintain UK-wide approaches, or ‘common frameworks’ in some policy areas that were previously governed by EU law and which intersect with areas of devolved competence.

It is intended that common frameworks will ensure coherent approaches to regulation are maintained across the UK. They will also enable the UK Government and the devolved administrations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to make different choices on how to implement the rules in some of these policy areas.

Further information about which policy areas common frameworks would apply is set out in this frameworks analysis 2021.

Further information about the Scottish Parliament’s scrutiny of common frameworks is available on the SPICe common frameworks information hub.
