Post-Brexit common frameworks

Inquiry

The Common Frameworks Scrutiny was appointed on 17 September 2020 to scrutinise and consider matters relating to Common Frameworks.

The United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union will result in a number of powers that are currently held by the EU being returned to the UK. Many of these powers currently intersect with the competences of at least one of the Scottish, Welsh or Northern Irish governments.

Common frameworks are a mechanism for the UK and devolved governments to mutually agree some amount of regulatory consistency for policy areas where returning EU powers are within devolved competence.

The Committee is considering how the common frameworks programme will operate and relate to other initiatives, how it could be reviewed and improved in the future, and the role for parliamentary scrutiny across the UK.
