Departments have been provided with guidance that the impact of EU Exit Statutory Instruments (SIs) should be assessed in line with standard practice by following the existing Better Regulation Framework, in accordance with HM Treasury’s Green Book guidance. This includes SIs that are being introduced to fix deficiencies to allow current systems or regulatory provisions to operate following the EU (Withdrawal) Act or following a no deal scenario.

All EU Exit SIs are published on gov.uk and legislation.gov.uk and where appropriate, impact assessments are published alongside them and detailed in the explanatory memoranda.
