Brexit Freedoms Bill

New Bill to review retained EU legislation

On Thursday 22 September 2022, the UK Government announced the introduction of the Brexit Freedoms Bill aimed at forcing a review of all retained EU legislation.  This Bill will give the UK Government new secondary powers to amend, replace or repeal the retained EU laws with the intention of removing legal restraints and replacing them with frameworks that work for the UK, supporting the UK Government’s objectives.

The Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill, or Brexit Freedoms Bill, intends to establish a sunset date for EU-derived subordinate legislation and retained direct EU legislation on 31 December 2023, although extensions may be sought until no later than 23 June 2026.

CTPA will monitor the progress of the Bill following its publication, and the possible implications to the UK Cosmetic Regulation (UK CR) as well as other legislations affecting the UK cosmetics industry.
