» Back to listing Repeals, revocations and amendments

8th April 2013

The Health and Safety (Miscellaneous Repeals, Revocations and Amendments) Regulations 2013 were laid before Parliament on 4 March and came into force on 6 April (subject to Parliamentary approval). These Regulations repeal one Act and revoke twelve instruments (plus a related   provision in the Factories Act 1961). These measures are being removed because they have either been overtaken by more up to date Regulations, are redundant or do not deliver the intended   benefits.

These changes do not compromise essential health and safety protections. The aim is to make the legislative framework simpler and clearer.

The full list of measures being removed are:    

  • Celluloid and Cinematograph Film Act 1922
  • Gasholders (Record of Examinations) Order 1938
  • Shipbuilding and Ship-repairing Regulations 1960
  • Celluloid and Cinematograph Film Act 1922 (Repeals and Modifications) Regulations 1974
  • Celluloid and Cinematograph Film Act 1922 (Exemptions) Regulations 1980
  • Gasholders and Steam Boilers (Metrication) Regulations 1981
  • Locomotives etc Regulations 1906 (Metrication) Regulations 1981
  • Notification of Installations Handling Hazardous Substances Regulations 1982
  • Docks, Shipbuilding etc (Metrication) Regulations 1983
  • Construction (Head Protection) Regulations 1989
  • Notification of Installations Handling Hazardous Substances (Amendment) Regulations 2002 
  • Notification of Conventional Tower Cranes Regulations 2010
  • Notification of Conventional Tower Cranes (Amendment) Regulations 2010
