Accession (Immigration and Worker Registration) Regulations 2004 come into force

Implementation date: 1 May 2004

The Regulations outline the registration scheme that must be completed by workers coming to the UK from eight of the 10 countries that are joining the EU on 1 May 2004. Under the Regulations, workers requiring registration who are already in legal employment on 30 April 2004 can continue to work for the employer concerned without further registration. Workers requiring registration who begin work on or after 1 May 2004 have to apply for a certificate within one month of beginning working. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
