Pesticide Regulations and Brexit
While it is the position of the Scottish Government that Scotland is better off remaining in the EU, preparations are underway for the UK’s exit from the EU. The four UK administrations have been working with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to ensure new regulations are similar to those in place before Brexit to protect human health and the environment and to provide stability for businesses and consumers.
The rules will be different depending on how the UK leaves the EU. The guidance below will help you prepare for each scenario.
- Guidance on arrangements for regulation of pesticides during an implementation period
- Guidance on regulation of pesticides if there is no deal
- HSE guidance reminder: Brexit guidance for businesses that manufacture or use pesticides
HSE will continue to operate as the UK’s regulator in both deal and no deal scenarios.
