HSE’s approach to Retained EU Law
Retained EU Law (REUL) is a category of domestic law created at the end of the transition period following Brexit. It is made up of EU legislation that the UK retained when leaving the EU.
HSE has identified 38 pieces of REUL that are redundant and no longer required that will be revoked at the end of 2023.
The Government has published a Schedule of retained EU law (gov.uk) that will be revoked at the end of 2023. HSE regulations are listed alongside regulations in its parent department, the Department for Work and Pensions.
Any Health and Safety regulations that are not listed on the Schedule of retained EU law (gov.uk) for revocation will remain as UK law.
A list of all identified retained EU law is available on Retained EU law dashboard (gov.uk).
