Exit day is 12th April
Yesterday (1st April) the Environment Agency began issuing EU Exit regulatory position statements (UK RPS).
These set out (time-limited) environmental permitting and licensing situations where the Environment Agency will not take action for non-compliance due to EU Exit.
The first two relate to radioactive materials and radioactive waste – here.
I will add these to a separate category in the Brexit Law List (in subscribers’ Cardinal Environment EHS Legislation Registers & Checklists).
Waste Transport across borders will become more difficult and delayed after EU Exit. Make sure checks are carried out on amounts stored vis a vis EPR Schedule 3 exemption limits. Contact the Environment Agency if limits will be exceeded.
Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – contact the local regulator.
