The United Kingdom (UK) completed its withdrawal from the EU on December 31, 2020, and, as of January 1, 2021, is a “third country” from the EU perspective. Companies worldwide must be aware of the significant implications for compliance under the following newly established independent chemical regulatory regimes: the Great Britain (England, Scotland, and Wales) (GB) Biocidal Products Regulation (GB BPR); the GB Classification, Labeling, and Packaging Regulation (GB CLP); the GB Prior Informed Consent (PIC) Regulation (GB PIC); Regulation (EC) 1107/2009 concerning plant protection products (PPP); and the UK REACH Regulation. On February 5, 2021, the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) provided a brief overview of the new chemical regulatory regimes and links to resources available online. Further information is available in The Acta Group’s, B&C’s affiliate, February 9, 2021, memorandum.
