ENDS Report - The environment after BREXIT

At a glance:

On 11 April a workshop took place to discuss the impact on environmental legislation as a result of BREXIT. Delegates included Members of Parliament, regulators, industry representatives and Non-Governmental Organisations

At the time of the meeting there was a lot of uncertainty over BREXIT, which were reflected in the discussions around alignment with other legislation and REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of CHemicals.)
