The UKs withdrawal from the EU


My EU27-based company needs to notify an export of a chemical subject to the PIC Regulation to the UK, and the export will take place after the date of the UK withdrawal. However, there is no withdrawal agreement in place. In accordance with Article 8(2) of the PIC Regulation, the export should be notified 35 days before the expected date of export, how to proceed?

Pursuant to Article 8(2) of Regulation (EU) No 649/2012 on the export and import of hazardous chemicals, exporters are required to notify their exports 35 days before the expected date of export. To cover exports taking place in the first 35 days from the withdrawal date if there is no withdrawal agreement, a procedure will be reactivated to allow EU27-based exporters to notify the planned export to the United Kingdom in advance of the withdrawal date. These export notifications will take effect if the United Kingdom is, as of the withdrawal date, a third country without a withdrawal agreement entering into force on that date.

Instructions on how to proceed are described in the document “How to notify PIC exports to the UK in the absence of a decision on the UK’s withdrawal from the EU
