Brexit – what it means for environmental compliance

The referendum has been decided, the result is in and the UK has voted to leave the European Union after 43 years as members.

The referendum is the start of a two year process of negotiations and decisions. The UK has now to decide if it will join the European Economic Area (EEA), thereby remaining as associate members of the European Union or cut all ties with Europe.

But what does this mean for producers?

Environmental compliance laws are embedded in UK law and producers must remain compliant with these laws and continue as they have been doing. It is highly likely that legislation will be rewritten during the review process resulting in a similar set of legislation that already exists.

Brexit is not an instant event but a process and Comply Direct will keep their members fully updated on any progress made.
