Is there a convenient way of determining the number of UK Statutory Instruments implemented annually as a direct result of EU legislation?

This page shows the totals, but I cannot see a way of distinguishing those that are implementing EU law.


House of Commons briefing paper #7867 lists all statutory instruments - nearly 8000 of them - which implement EU directives (and occasionally regulations) up to 2017.

It's possible to do an advanced search on the legislation.gov.uk website, which looks for all SIs which mention the European Communities Act 1972. I wouldn't regard this as a complete list, as a small proportion of EU legislation is enacted via Acts of Parliament, but it's better than a list of all SIs!
