SI 2019/758 The REACH etc. (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019

These Regulations are made in exercise of the powers conferred by the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (c. 16) in order to address failures of retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies (in particular under section 8(2)(a) to (d) and (g)) arising from the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

These Regulations make amendments to legislation in the field of chemicals, amending in particular Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), establishing a European Chemicals Agency. They also make minor amendments to legislation relating to the Disposal of Polychlorinated Biphenyls and other Dangerous Substances, and the rules of the First-tier Tribunal’s General Regulatory Chamber.
