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

Under agenda item 2, we are considering two instruments 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 following Scottish statutory instruments.


Storage of Carbon Dioxide (Licensing etc) (EU Exit) (Scotland) (Amendment) Amendment Regulations 2021 (SSI 2021/383)

Both instruments have been laid under the negative procedure and are considered by the Scottish Government to be of low significance. Is the committee content that the appropriate scrutiny procedure has been applied to the instruments and that the SSIs are of low significance?

Members indicated agreement.


Plant Health (EU Exit) (Scotland) (Amendment) (No 2) Regulations 2021 [Draft]

Under agenda item 3, we are considering a further instrument laid under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. In this case, the committee is considering whether the appropriate category has been applied to the draft regulations. The instrument has been categorised by the Scottish Government as being of medium significance. Is the committee content that the SSI has been categorised properly?

Members indicated agreement.
