The current political situation in the UK remains clouded in uncertainty. Agencies in Europe and the UK are gearing up to manage the UK leaving the European Union (EU) at the end of March without a withdrawal agreement in place (the agreement that implements a transition period to ensure continuity of trade and services to and from the UK into the EU).

In light of this, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA); and the UK’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE); Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS); and the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) have been preparing for a so-called ‘no-deal Brexit’ (British exit from the EU) on 29 March 2019.

If the UK leaves with a no-deal scenario, then EU Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) registrations held by legal entities in the UK will become void and a new UK REACH regulation will come into force overnight. Organisations should be preparing now to ensure they can continue to trade their chemical products in the UK and the EU from 30 March. To read the rest of the article please click here
