answer text <p>The detail of the UK’s association to the EU Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation &amp; restriction of Chemicals programme after the UK leaves the EU is part of ongoing negotiations. The UK and the EU have a mutual interest in maintaining our integrated chemical supply chains as the chemicals industry is an economically significant sector in both regions, and it underpins key downstream sectors including automotive, aerospace, construction and pharmaceuticals. In the White Paper on our future relationship with the European Union published in July, the UK has proposed that chemicals are part of a UK-EU free trade area on goods, with continued UK participation in the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) underpinning this arrangement. This proposal is part of ongoing negotiation.</p> more like this

answer text <p>In 2012 the UK proposed that the substance decaBDE should be classified as a substance of very high concern (SVHC), which would be followed by authorisation procedures to limit its use. DecaBDE was listed as an SVHC, as proposed by the UK, but the EU decided not to proceed with authorisation procedures, and took an alternative route of restriction instead. The restriction was not adopted until 2017. The EU’s decision to opt for a restriction rather than continuing with the authorisation process resulted in a delay in regulatory action.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government is committed to maintaining standards of environmental protection after we leave the EU.</p><p>The Political Declaration refers to the possibility of cooperation between the UK and the European Chemicals Agency on chemicals. Any arrangements will be a matter for future trade negotiations.</p><p>Current EU regulations for chemicals and pesticides have already been legislated for in domestic law, where necessary to be automatically triggered in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal.</p><p>More broadly, the environmental protections afforded by EU Treaties, including the TFEU, will not be weakened when we leave the EU, though we will no longer be part of EU institutions like the Economic and Social Committee. Environmental principles and a provision to publish a policy statement have been included in clauses in the draft Environment Bill.</p> more like this
