In our January 2021 newsletter we report on the European Union (Future Relationship) Act 2020 and The Health and Safety and Nuclear (Fees) Regulations 2021. We cover amendments to UK legislation with respect to conservation, dangerous substances and waste. There is an amendment to a relevant Republic of Ireland legislation and another to an EU Regulation. We review changes to the REACH Regulations resulting from BREXIT. We chart the passage of relevant legislation through Parliament.
Featured in the In the News section is guidance on action to be taken if fluorinated gas (F gas) exports from the UK are rejected at an EU border control post and on the RIDDOR reporting of COVID-19 incidents. There are two new consultations on regulation of genetic technologies and to changes of water management legislation. There are two prosecutions of note.
