According to departmental records, Defra has transposed a total of 36 EU Directives into UK law since May 2010, 9 of which were transposed without the need to introduce new legislation.

We do not hold a central record of all directly applicable EU regulations coming into effect since 2010. Details of all current European legislation are on the Euro-Lex website:
