CD232Proposals to replace the existing Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 (Application outside Great Britain) Order 2001 with a new 2013 Application Outside Great Britain Order

This consultation seeks views on HSE’s proposals for replacing the 2001 Order and 2011 Variation Order with a new 2013 Order.

The new Order will:

  • Ensure the statutory protection currently provided for in the 2001 Order and the 2011 Variation Order is maintained;
  • Provide legal clarity for duty holders that HSE has the power to regulate activities associated with new emerging energy technologies (e.g. combustible gas storage, carbon dioxide storage and underground coal gasification);
  • Simplify the new Order, by clarifying the definition of certain activities due to lessons learned based on operational experience. 

It is intended the new 2013 Order will come into force on 6th April 2013
