Brexit will have profound implications as the EU regulatory regimes such as the REACH Regulation, the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR), Classification and Labelling Regulation (CLP) and Prior Informed Consent (PIC) Regulation will no longer directly apply to the United Kingdom.
The REACH regulation assigned regulatory functions to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) as well as to national authorities including the United Kingdom. Similarly, ECHA has been entrusted with managing the implementation of the BPR, CLP and PIC regulations.
Once the UK withdraws from the EU, cooperation with the UK will no longer be based on these EU regulations.
Companies situated within the UK and from the remaining EU-27 Member States with rights and obligations under these regulations and their businesses in supply chains throughout the EU, will be tangibly affected.
A new section on the ECHA webpages provides information on the impact of the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union on the work of the Agency as well as advice to business operators in the format of questions and answers. This can be accessed through the following link: https://echa.europa.eu/uk-withdrawal-from-the-eu
The negotiation process on the terms of the UK withdrawal as well as the future EU-UK relations will take time.
The information provided in the new section on the ECHA webpages will be expanded and updated as the withdrawal process becomes clearer. Readers are advised to consult such updates in light of developments.
