answer text <p>Following the no-deal technical notice published on 23<sup>rd</sup> August 2018, the Government laid the draft State Aid (EU Exit) Regulations on 21 January 2019. The draft Regulations make amendments to the retained EU law on State Aid, where appropriate to correct deficiencies, in accordance with the powers in the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. These draft Regulations transfer the State Aid regulatory functions of the European Commission to the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).</p><p> </p><p>The draft Regulations were approved in the House of Lords on 14 March and debated by the Delegated Legislation Committee in the House of Commons on 10 April. No date has yet been set for the final approval motion.</p><p> </p><p>The CMA has already recruited and trained the staff that it considers necessary to start operating the regime at the point this is required.</p> more like this

Member to the answer that I gave on 24 July 2019 under UIN 279465.</p><p> </p><p>We welcome the steps taken by the EU and some individual member states to help mitigate cliff-edge risks to financial services. This includes:</p><ul><li>The EU’s temporary equivalence and recognition for UK central counterparties (CCPs) and central securities depositories (CSDs). This follows similar action from HMT to legislate for a process to facilitate continued access for EU and global CCPs and CSDs to the UK market.</li><li>The European Securities and Markets Authority and the FCA have agreed MoUs that include provisions to allow cross-border delegation of portfolio management between the UK and the EEA. This provides the asset management industry with certainty that portfolio delegation services between themselves and clients in the EEA can continue in any exit scenario.</li><li>Recommendations from the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority which call on relevant Member State regulators to put in place measures which aim to minimise detriment to insurance policyholders. It is a matter for national regulators whether they choose to comply with this guidance.</li></ul>

answer text <p>As set out in the technical notice, the Government’s primary goal is to ensure that the UK patent system continues to function effectively in the event of a no deal exit. This requires a small amount of legislative change. In February 2019, Parliament approved the <a href="http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2019/801/made" target="_blank">Patents (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019</a>, which corrected deficiencies in retained EU law relating to patents. The Government has since published <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/changes-to-spc-and-patent-law-if-uk-leaves-the-eu-without-a-deal/" target="_blank">guidance for business</a> on these changes. It continues to engage with stakeholders on the impacts of exit and preparation for a no deal scenario.</p><p> </p><p>A further statutory instrument is required to address inoperabilities in a new piece of patents-related EU legislation which entered into force earlier this month. A <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/supplementary-protection-certificate-waiver-no-deal-legislation" target="_blank">public call for views</a> on the drafting of this instrument opened on 5 July 2019.</p>
