HSE issues advice on trading chemicals in the event of a no-deal Brexit

September 13, 2019

Advice on trading chemicals: If the UK leaves the EU without a deal companies will need to follow new rules for trading certain types of chemicals with the EU after 31 October, according to advice from the HSE.

Import or export licences needed

Just as is the case for countries outside the EU, companies may need import or export licences to trade drug precursor chemicals with the EU.

Domestic licence of registration required

To apply for an import or export licence companies must have a domestic licence or registration, which usually takes 12-16 weeks to process.

Apply now to avoid delay

The HSE advises to avoid disruption, companies can check whether the chemicals they trade will be affected and apply for a domestic licence now.

Go to GOV.UK for further guidance.
