Most EU environmental roles unaffected by Brexit

Brexit is unlikely to have a large impact on environmental professionals who practice within the European Economic Area (EEA) because most are not in regulated roles in the EU.

That is according to an update by IEMA, which said that there shouldn’t be any specific restriction or barriers, even if blanket provisions are introduced for anyone providing services into the EU’s single market. One notable exception to this would be for environmental health officers, which  are regulated in various EU countries.
