Detail of outcome
We received 34 responses to this consultation. The views expressed have been taken into account in our proposed approach to implementing EU Regulation 2017/852 on Mercury, as set out in the government response.
We expect the UK regulations to come into force on 1 January 2018.
We want to know what you think about how we plan to enforce controls on mercury in the UK. The controls will apply the requirements of EU Regulation 2017/852 on mercury.
We are interested in the views of those in industries that use mercury or deal with mercury waste, as well as those involved in dentistry. In particular, we would like to hear whether you view the approach proposed as being appropriate and proportionate.
