If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, UK no deal regulations will be in place to ensure continuity with the EU persistent organic pollutants (POPs) regulations. The UK’s enforcing authorities will continue to implement the Stockholm Convention, regulating the production, placing on the market and use of POPs. It will also regulate stockpiles and manage waste where POPs are present.
