1. Schedule 1, paragraph 1 (d) of the Immigration (European Economic Area) (Amendment) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/1547) amended the definition of EEA national to exclude those who are also British Citizens, but that change was subject to the transitional provisions set out in Schedule 3 of those regulations. Similar provisions were added to the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016 by the Immigration (European Economic Area) (Amendment) Regulations 2017 (SI 2017/1) which amended schedule 6 of the 2016 Regulations by adding a new paragraph 9.
2. Although the reg 1 (2) of the 2016 regulations revoked the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006, they are preserved for the purposes of appeals, as are the rights of appeal by an amendment to Schedule 4 of the new EEA Regulations made by the Immigration (European Economic Area) (Amendment) Regulations 2017 (SI 2017/1).
3. While the representatives regulated by OISC and members of the Bar of Northern Ireland are both entitled under section 84 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 to provide immigration services, section 11 of the Code of Conduct of the Bar of Northern Ireland precludes barristers from taking instructions from persons other than lawyers who are governed by a professional body (which does not include OISC).
