Since BEIS officials raised this issue with the Commission we have seen a new draft of the regulation which now includes a technical exemption for stage lighting. Prior to voting at the Regulatory Committee, due to take place at the end of the year, we will carry out a cost benefit analysis for the UK, and will continue to consult on the draft regulation and listen to any concerns raised by interested parties.
