UK Parliament Environmental Audit Committee Seeks Stakeholder Views on Implementation of UK REACH


The Environmental Audit Committee of the United Kingdom (UK) Parliament announced on November 1, 2022, that it is planning an oral evidence session later in 2022 to examine progress in implementing UK REACH, which governs the registration, evaluation, and authorization of chemical products in England, Scotland, and Wales. The Committee plans to take evidence from representatives of the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

In advance of that evidence session, the Committee states that it is interested in submissions from stakeholders in sectors affected by the implementation of UK REACH and the transitional provisions established to help industry with the move from the European Union (EU) Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation to the domestic regime. Any stakeholder with observations on the implementation of UK REACH is invited to submit them to the Committee via the evidence portal, to be received not later than November 11, 2022.
