28 Jun Brexit and the CRRU UK Rodenticide Stewardship Regime: Business as usual
Dr Alan Buckle, Chairman of CRRU UK, said today:
“CRRU UK will seek clarification in due course from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) about the possible effects, if any, of Brexit on the UK Rodenticide Stewardship Regime. For the time being, the message is ‘business as usual’.
“Although the time-lines for authorisation of rodenticide products in UK have been set recently by the European Commission, the rodenticide stewardship regime is unique to the UK. Its requirements and operation were determined by CRRU UK in response to the
concerns of HSE about the ability of professional users in this country to apply rodenticides safely.
“There is no reason to believe that any changes will occur to the regime in the short to medium term as a result of Brexit. Indeed, it is my opinion that there are unlikely to be any changes at all.”
