star this property answer text <p>The European Union (Withdrawal Bill) will convert existing EU chemicals law, including REACH, into domestic law wherever practical, giving consumers and businesses as much certainty as possible. The UK is strongly committed to the effective and safe management of chemicals. That will not change when we leave the EU.</p><p> </p><p>The Government published its position paper on continuity in the availability of goods for the EU and the UK in August. This paper set out the principles the UK is proposing for ensuring the availability of goods after Exit. This includes seeking to avoid unnecessary duplication of compliance activity for businesses and proposing that the UK and EU markets continue to recognise the validity of registrations issued prior to exit.</p><p> </p><p>While it would not be appropriate to pre-judge the outcome of the negotiations we will discuss with the EU and Member States how best to continue cooperation in chemicals regulation in the best interests of both the UK and the EU.</p>
