Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland

BREXIT 'No Deal' Guidance

BREXIT 'No Deal' Guidance

As a business, you are responsible for any activity that could have negative impacts on the environment or human health.

However, with BREXIT approaching and no sign of a deal there is some uncertainty surrounding what could happen to regulations and legislation.

So here at NetRegs we have compiled some useful guidance on what may happen to regulations if the UK were to leave the EU in March 2019 with no deal.

The guidance covers a wide range of topics and industries:

  • Classifying, labelling and packaging
  • Trading electricity
  • Trade agreements
  • Waste shipments
  • Chemical, fertiliser and pesticide regulation
  • Low carbon electricity
  • Imports and exports
  • Environmental standards
  • Emission standards
  • GM crops
  • Funding
  • Oil and Gas.

All of the guidance is available on the NetRegs website - BREXIT No Deal Guidance
