Regulating Chemicals in the UK – Free Webinar | Chemicals Northwest
CNW News

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) are hosting a second virtual stakeholder event covering the actions businesses in the chemicals sector need to take to keep their business moving following the Brexit transition period.

The webinar event takes place online on Wednesday, 20 January 2021 and runs from 10.15am to 1pm.

The webinar will focus on ensuring attendees are well informed of the duties and obligations with which they need to comply to access the UK market now that the transition period has ended. The event will be interactive and give delegates the opportunity to ask questions of the expert panel drawn from HSE and Defra.

Sessions for the event include Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR), Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP), Plant Protection Products (PPP) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals (REACH).

Dr Matthew Penrose, Head of Chemicals (Future Readiness) Policy at HSE, said: “­­­­­HSE and Defra have been working with chemicals stakeholders to support various engagement events over many months.

“A similar webinar took place in December 2020 and proved to be very popular and informative across the chemical sector while this follow-up event aims to consolidate important information following the end of the transition period as we move into the new ways of working.

“The webinar will be focused on making sure the chemicals sector is well informed of the duties and obligations they need to comply with to access the GB market now that the transition period has ended.”

As with the previous HSE-led Brexit chemicals event, this is likely to be extremely popular and spaces are limited to two persons per organisation to allow as many organisations as possible to attend.
