Date: 3rd February 2021
The webinar will cover
The UK has taken back control of the management of chemicals and implemented its own version of REACH legislation for the chemical industry. The very first step of that process was to copy over the current EU REACH legislation into UK law while simultaneously introducing a significant amount of amending legislation to make the new UK regime work.
The result is two parallel chemical markets: the EU single market and the UK market. The copy means that the compliance requirements for both markets are equivalent, but not exactly the same. The practical reality for those companies placing chemicals on the UK market is that, despite an overarching objective to maintain the status quo, some action is required now. It is also important for businesses to look a bit further ahead and consider the new challenges on the horizon.
