CURRENT GB-CLP REGULATIONS

  • The 2019 regulations bring the CLP Regulation (and other chemical legislation) into effect in the whole of the UK: The Chemicals (Health and Safety) and Genetically Modified Organisms (Contained Use) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, UK SI 2019/720 
  • The 2020 regulation which take Northern Ireland back out under EC control under the Northern Ireland Protocol: The Chemicals (Health and Safety) and Genetically Modified Organisms (Contained Use) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020, UK SI 2020/1567 
  • Note that EU-CLP has been adopted into GB without Annex VIII, so Poison Centre in GB is not mandatory – but it is mandatory for Northern Ireland
