UK plans to replace and repeal rules copied from EU

LONDON: Brexit Minister David Frost said on Thursday that Britain was beginning to replace or eliminate EU rules that were copied into British law before leaving the country.

To avoid uncertainty and confusion as the UK pulled itself out of the EU after 40 years, the government automatically incorporated thousands of EU laws and regulations into British law so that they would still apply after Brexit. .

“We now have the opportunity to do things differently,” Frost said in a statement.

Earlier he told parliament’s upper house, the House of Lords, “I want to be clear, our intention is to ultimately amend, replace, or repeal all that upholds EU law that is for the UK. Is not right.”

Frost cited data rights, genetically modified organisms regulations, clinical trials and port services as examples of areas where the government planned to move away from EU regulations.

The government also said that it plans to replace paper shareholding certificates with digital certificates and introduce digital driving licences.

“The government will move further and faster to create a competitive, high-standard regulatory environment that supports innovation and growth across the UK,” Frost said.
