The following regulations were published in draft form on 15 July 2022 so that they are available to stakeholders in sufficient time ahead of the proposed 1 December coming into force date. They will not be made in their final form until the Autumn of 2022. This is because these regulations include references to the two Consequential Amendments statutory instruments which have not yet been made: no other substantive changes to these regulations are anticipated at this stage.
