To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of whether there has been any change in applicable standards for endocrine disrupting chemicals resulting from regulations made under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018.
The Government has made a clear commitment that the UK’s high level of environmental protection will be maintained outside the EU. We will ensure that the regulation of pesticides continues to be robust and fit for purpose, so as to protect people and the environment. This includes maintaining controls on endocrine disrupting chemicals.
We have addressed a drafting error in an EU Exit Statutory Instrument to make it clear that these controls are maintained. A draft instrument has been submitted to Parliament for sifting.
