Environmental Audit Committee
Following the Committee’s work in 2016-17 into the Future of chemicals regulation after the EU referendum there will be a one-off session asking what has changed and what more needs to be done to prepare the chemicals industry for the UK leaving the EU, as well as examining preparations for a no deal scenario. The session begins with a panel of industry experts looking at possible future outcomes for REACH, the EU chemicals regulatory framework.
The second panel will examine the impact of a new regulatory framework on UK businesses, both producers and downstream users, and seek recommendations on what Government needs to do to help the industry prepare for the UK leaving the EU.
Previously the Committee invited views on the Government’s response to the former Committee's report on The Future of Chemicals Regulation after the EU Referendum and the section on chemicals in the Delegated Powers Memorandum.
The Committee raised the issue during its hearing with the Secretary of State, the Westminster Hall debate on its previous report and the Liaison Committee hearing with the Prime Minister (PDF 394 KB) ( PDF 394 KB).
