the process of delivering a huge secondary legislation programme to ensure a functioning
statute book on exit day. As of today, BEIS has laid 62 exit related statutory instruments,
including new laws for a nuclear safeguards regime that will maintain the UK industry’s
ability to trade in the nuclear sector while ensuring the UK remains on track to meet
its international obligations on day one of exit, and plan to lay the remaining instruments
by the end of this month.</p><p> </p><p>We have also published 28 technical notices,
including on oil and gas, climate change, company law and state aid. These will continue
to be updated.</p><p> </p><p>BEIS also continues to work closely with the rest of
government on EU Exit issues, to ensure a cohesive approach is taken to support businesses.

develop the EU Exit business Q&A tool, which was been used over 20,000 times.</p><p>
