These Regulations amend the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010 for purposes of implementing Council Directive 2011/97/EU, which amends Council Directive 1999/31/EC on the landfill of waste. They, among other things: replace the definition of the Landfill Directive so as to take account of that Directive’s amendment by Council Directive 2011/97/EU; enable the Regulator to exercise its functions so as to permit the storage of liquid waste in accordance with the Mercury Regulation; and impose obligations to send copies of environmental permits and safety assessments to the Secretary of State. They also amend the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations 1999 in relation to England, Wales and Scotland to bring sites used for the storage of metallic mercury pursuant to Article 3(1)(b) of the Mercury Regulation within the scope of application of those Regulations.

The United Kingdom has historically played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith in the 19th century, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted in two world wars and the Irish Republic's withdrawal from the union. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation.
