Part 3 of these regulations amends the EU withdrawal regulations of 2019 and the regulations relating to mutual recognition agreements and is exercised in the exercise of the powers conferred in Article 8, paragraph 1 of the European Union Withdrawal Act (Withdrawal Act 2018 (approximately 16) to address the shortcomings of EU legislation on actual functioning and other shortcomings (particularly in accordance with paragraphs (a) (b). (c), (c) and (g) Section 8, paragraph 2, and paragraph a), section 8, paragraph 3, of this Act) resulting from the United Kingdom`s withdrawal from the European Union. Regulations 5, 6 and 7 relate to the requirement for importers to provide their contact information in certain product safety and metrology legislation. Regulation 5 amends this obligation through a series of provisions relating to product safety and measurement techniques, so that importers who are to be headquartered in the United Kingdom after the UK`s withdrawal from the European Union can, for a limited period, indicate their information on a document accompanying the product and not on the product itself in which they import products from Switzerland. Regulations 6 and 7 only slightly specify the text of this obligation in the EU withdrawal regulations of 2019. Regulation 8 provides for changes to the cosmetics provisions to ensure that these provisions function properly from the date of departure. Regulation 9 includes changes to the personal protective equipment provisions to ensure that certain savings rules work logically. Regulations 10-17 amend the provisions for outdoor equipment, machinery, civil explosives, single pressure containers, pressurized equipment, measuring instruments, pleasure boats or accreditation to ensure that these provisions operate effectively from the day of departure. These regulations aim to ensure that product safety and metrology legislation works properly, even after the UK leaves the EU.
