European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Instrument Procedure and Category

Official Controls (Transitional Staging Period) (Miscellaneous Amendments) (Scotland) (No 2) Regulations 2021 (SSI 2021/342)

Under agenda item 3, we are considering a Scottish statutory instrument laid under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. The committee is considering whether the appropriate scrutiny procedure and the appropriate category have been applied to the instrument.

The instrument has been laid under the negative procedure and has been categorised by the Scottish Government as being of low significance. Is the committee content that the appropriate scrutiny procedure has been applied to the instrument and that the SSI has been categorised properly as being of low significance?

Members indicated agreement.
