Defra is in the process of analysing its REUL stock and determining what should be preserved as part of domestic law, as well as REUL that should be repealed, or amended. The Department is currently undertaking a programme to coordinate this analysis. Confirmed REUL is available on the public dashboard, owned by the Brexit Opportunities Unit. This will be updated quarterly. Defra will continue to review its position to identify any remaining REUL and to update the dashboard as required should further REUL be confirmed. Where appropriate, the department will also continue to make use of powers within our Agriculture, Fisheries and Environment Acts in parallel.
