Occupational Pension Schemes (Equal Treatment) (Amendment) Regulations 2005 come into force

Implementation date: 10 August 2005

The Regulations amend the statutory provisions that require equal treatment of men and women in respect of occupational pension schemes to reflect requirements of European Community law, as applied in a number of cases before the European Court of Justice and the domestic courts.
