National Security and Investment Bill: the impact on energy and infrastructure

Allen & Overy LLP

On 11 November 2020 the UK Government published its groundbreaking National Security and Investment Bill (Bill). The Bill will drastically expand the Government’s powers to scrutinise investment on national security grounds, through a requirement for mandatory notification of transactions in 17 identified sensitive sectors backed by a ‘call-in’ power applying to an extremely wide range of transactions across all sectors of the economy, with no turnover or market share thresholds. The Bill will have a particular impact on energy and infrastructure investors since, once the legislation is in force, many of their transactions with a UK nexus will require advance notification and clearance.
