UK HSE issues guidance on Biocides and Brexit

November 15, 2018

On October 12, the UK HSE (Health and Safety Executive) issued several technical notes of guidance concerning the regulation of chemicals in the UK following a potential no-deal EU exit of the UK in March 2019.

As part of a series of technical notices, the guidance on biocidal products outlines the arrangements that would come into force to regulate biocides in the event the UK leaves the EU on 29 March 2019 with no agreement in place, with respect to the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR). Other technical notices of potential relevance relate to REACH and Classification and Labelling of Chemicals.
