Export and import of dangerous chemicals (PIC) eBulletin

Welcome to the HSE export and import of hazardous chemicals (PIC) eBulletin

The aim of this e-bulletin is to provide you with updates, news and information on the PIC Regulation (Regulation (EU) No 649/2012 concerning the export and import of hazardous chemicals).

Below you can find brief information and/or links to more detailed articles on the HSE or other external websites.

Export and import of dangerous chemicals

This is an opportunity to answer a short survey about the Biocidal Products and Chemicals (Appointment of Authorities and Enforcement) Regulations 2013 (BPC) in particular looking at the aspects related to the PIC Regulation.

The questions can be found in SurveyMonkey using the following link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/7NJBVPB . The survey is open between now and 31 August 2017.

BPC came into force on 1 September 2013 (except for those parts set out in paragraphs 4-5 of regulation 2 in the BPC) to support EU Regulations, including the direct-acting EU Regulation 649/2012 on the export and import of hazardous chemicals, known as the PIC Regulation (see https://echa.europa.eu/regulations/prior-informed-consent/legislation), in relation to the appointment of designated national authorities and enforcement arrangements. PIC administers the export and import of certain hazardous chemicals and places obligations on companies who wish to export these chemicals to non-EU countries.

A full Statutory Review of BPC is due by August 2018. It was agreed to conduct an earlier, partial post-implementation review (PIR) of BPC on those aspects relating to biocidal products, and that work is complete for now. The current exercise is to address the PIC aspects of BPC for the full review. Given that the UK has to have designated national authorities and enforcement arrangements the review, though statutory, should be straightforward.

Please note that the review is not linked to negotiations over the UK exiting the EU. Furthermore, we are not seeking any comments about the directly-acting EU PIC Regulation at this time.

The original policy objectives for BPC are set out in the final impact assessment. Broadly these included meeting the requirements in three EU Regulations, consolidating these requirements and making biocides fees provisions transparent.

This survey is open until 31 August 2017 and the link once again is https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/7NJBVPB
