Explanatory Notes

Legal background

39 The approach in the Bill to preserving EU law is to ensure that all EU laws which are directly applicable in the UK and all laws which have been made in the UK in order to implement our obligations as a member of the EU are converted into domestic law on the day the UK leaves the EU, subject to some limited exceptions. The paragraphs below set out the different aspects of EU law in the UK which operate currently. The commentary on the provisions of the Bill set out where changes to this will occur.
