    REACH Responsibilities After the Brexit Transition Period

    The UK has left the EU, and is currently in a transition period which will come to an end on 31 December 2020. After this period the United Kingdom will implement its own independent chemicals regulatory framework ‘UK REACH’. This will mean that for market access in the EU and UK, separate registrations will be needed for substances under both (EU) REACH and UK REACH. The UK government has provided updated guidance on the measures needed for registrations under the new UK REACH system.

    As the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement transition period nears its end, the UK government has published updated guidance on complying with the new UK REACH regulation Under UK REACH, manufactures and importers will have a duty to register chemicals that are produced, distributed or sold in the UK. This change means companies should review their substance registrations and roles in chemical supply chains to ensure continued compliance in the UK and/or the EU where separate registrations will be needed.

  • UK – Derogation to the BPR for hand sanitisers 

    kelly sikkema WIYtZU3PxsI unsplashWith the on-going public health crisis that has arisen from the Covid-19 pandemic, the availability of hand sanitisers is playing an important role in fighting the spread of the disease. With the huge increase in demand that is now being witnessed for hand sanitizers, it has rarely been more important to ensure that such products can be readily brought to market to help prevent supply shortages. 

    As a means of improving the availability of hand sanitisers on the UK market, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has utilised Article 55 of the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) which enables them to make short term derogations to the requirements for product authorisations in situations of public health emergencies. 

    Under this derogation, propan-2-ol hand sanitisers do not require authorisation according to the BPR in order to be placed on the UK market. A derogation certificate can be obtained for these products from HSE, on the condition that they meet the WHO formulation requirements.
