Legislation updates for July 2019
The Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs published guidance on regulating persistent organic pollutants if there’s no Brexit deal. Should the UK leave the EU without a deal, the UK’s persistent organic pollutants (POPs) regulation will continue in its current form. Because the UK signed both the Stockholm Convention and the Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution on POPs (CLRTAP), all existing obligations and protections will continue.

Furthermore, the guidance also describes the circumstances when MCPs are exempt from ELVs.
