These regulationsmake amendments to the Family Procedure Rules 2010 (the FPR) and the Court of Protection Rules 2017 (the COPR) that are consequential upon the Withdrawal Act and upon statutory instruments made under powers conferred by that Act.
These regulationshave been made using powers in the European Union Withdrawal Act 2018 (the Withdrawal Act). The amendments form part of the implementation of the Government's strategy for ensuring an orderly statute book in the event of an exit from the EU without a withdrawal agreement.
The amendments remove provision in the FPR and COPR which relates to powers, processes and orders under EU instruments or international agreements which will no longer be applicable or available when those instruments or agreements are revoked by the Withdrawal Act or the statutory instruments made under it, or in some cases amend such provision where such instruments are retained in an amended form.
