Brexit: UK Government commits to not ‘undermine’ public participation and stakeholder involvement in chemical laws

On 4th June CHEM Trust’s lawyers Leigh Day sent a legal letter to the UK Government, arguing that their proposed post-Brexit rules for chemicals and pesticides were not a proper reflection of the EU laws they were supposed to be copying. These laws would enter into force in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

Since this letter, the Government re-drafted the pesticides rules, claiming that there had been a ‘drafting error’, which was surprising given that they deleted the most controversial part of the EU’s pesticides law, the ban on endocrine (hormone) disrupting chemicals.
