Revised Guidance for Parallel Trade Permit Procedure following non-formal consultation
Brexit: Transition period
The UK has now left the EU. Your health and safety responsibilities have not changed in the transition period.
Regulatory Update: 13/2015
Issued: 7th August 2015
This Regulatory Update provides a summary of the consultation responses to the non-formal consultation on parallel trade products, HSE's response and revised new guidance.
HSE consulted on proposals for parallel trade plant protection products in November 2013. The consultation closed on 16 January 2014.
Since then HSE has explored the comments provided and worked on revising the guidance document to provide further clarification. The new guidance also takes account of the preliminary ruling of the fifth chamber of the Court of Justice of the European Union in the case of Mac GmbH v. Ministère de l’Agriculture, de L’Agroalimentaire et de la Forêt (C-108/13).
HSE’s response to the comments on the proposals for parallel trade products can be found in the Summary of Responses.
New guidance to be adopted
HSE will adopt the new guidance and procedures for applications for a new parallel trade permit received from 1st October 2015.
If you have further comments on the new guidance that you have not already mentioned in your consultation response you should provide these to [email protected] by 4th September 2015.
