Nos conseils à 2 mois du Brexit

New amendments voted this week

This past week has yet again been rich in votes for the British Parliament. Members of Parliament (MPs) have had to decide on a possible postponing of Brexit. This amendment has been voted down, as has been the one preparing an alternate scenario by Jeremy Corbyn. However, another amendment mandating the government to renegotiate the withdrawal agreementwith Brussels was passed in the House of Commons.

Specifically, MPs agreed to back the treaty decided in November if the issue of the “Irish backstop” were to be renegotiated. Nevertheless, the European Union has refused to reopen negotiation and is entirely opposed to removing the backstop from the treaty.

The United Kingdom has again reached a stalemate. It is difficult to foresee how things will play out, with “no deal Brexit” 29th March deadline getting closer. Officials in Brussels think it is still possible to see Brexit date postponed for a few months, and we will doubtlessly have more information in the coming weeks.

Repercussions on the chemical industry

A third of British companies have actually already announced they were ready to move their activities in preparation for Brexit.

Considering this and the uncertainty surrounding the exit date as well as the lack of clarity from leaders, EcoMundo suggests you anticipate these developments as much as you can. To do so, our experts can advise youon the proceedings you can undertake on a regulatory level, whatever your role is.

Depending on the UK’s role in your supply chain, or if you are UK-based yourself, you might have to:

  • Register yourself the substances you import from the UK;
  • Appoint an Only Representative (OR) in the EU-27;
  • Transfer authorisations or pending applications for authorisation of substances of a UK-based manufacturer or OR to an EU-27 OR;
  • Change the labelling and packaging of your products;
  • Etc.
