The purpose of the UK Internal Market (UKIM) Act 2020 is to allow people and businesses to work and trade freely across the whole of the UK after leaving the European Union (EU).
This consultation seeks information and views on:
- any current cases in which the requirement to recognise authorisations issued by a regulator in another part of the UK is disapplied under the Provision of Services Regulations 2009 (‘the 2009 Regulations’)
- why it may be appropriate to formalise such instances under the UKIM Act in the form of specific exclusions from the mutual recognition principle under Schedule 2. If there are no reasons for these instances to be formalised, they will not be included in the list of exclusions under the UKIM Act
- why any current derogation under the 2009 Regulations should not be added to the exclusions lists
- how the exclusions list at Schedule 2, derived from the 2009 Regulations, could be amended to reflect the fact that the UK has now left the European Union
- any other ways that the UK’s internal market for services could be further enhanced
This consultation by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy runs from 25 February to 23 April 2021.
