REACH regulation update regarding melamine
Prior to Brexit, the UK had to comply with EU REACH, the legislation that governs the safe use of chemicals.
From 1 January 2021 EU REACH and UK REACH became separate chemical regulatory regimes operating in different jurisdictions. EU REACH is managed by ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) and UK REACH is managed by HSE (Health and Safety Executive).
Initially both sets of legislation remained identical, however, we are now starting to see some divergence between these.
