On 17 April 2018, the UK Government posted SI 2018/484 – The Export (Penalty) (Amendment) Regulations 2018. These Regulations amend the Export (Penalty) Regulations 2003 (S.I. 2003/3102) (‘the 2003 Regulations’). The 2003 Regulations provide in part for penalties for contravention of rules on exports set out in EU legislation. These Regulations replace references to the Community Customs Code and associated legislation which have lapsed with references to the Union Customs Code and associated legislation that are currently in force.
Regulation 1 introduces these Regulations and sets out when they come into force.
Regulation 2 provides that the 2003 Regulations are amended.
Regulation 3 amends Regulation 2 of the 2003 Regulations so that they make accurate reference to the current provisions.
Regulation 4 amends the Schedule to the 2003 Regulations so that they make reference to the current provisions as well as make any consequential amendments necessary as a result of the changes in the relevant EU legislation.
