UK Product Safety and Metrology Guidance in a No Deal Scenario
This guidance only applies from Exit Day if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
So, what’s changing in relation to product safety and metrology?
When the UK leaves the EU, the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 will come into effect, retaining EU-derived legislation, including product safety and metrology legislation, in domestic UK law. The Product Safety and Metrology etc. (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 will amend this retained legislation to address deficiencies that would arise from the UK’s withdrawal from the EU under a “no deal” scenario (such as references to EU institutions) and will make specific provision for the UK market should the UK leave the EU without a deal. The Regulations will not otherwise introduce a new policy regime on product safety or legal metrology and the changes they will make are limited. Here are the key things to note, with sections below on the specific product safety and metrology legislation amended by the Regulations.
