The Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) is setting up a new think tank to consider the enormous implications of Brexit on trading standards
The Chartered Trading Standards Institute's new Brexit think tank intends to influence the debate around consumer protection and aims to protect regulations that were previously shaped by the EU, covering areas such as animal health and feed, food and agriculture.
The Think Tank will be made up of senior CTSI staff, as well as policy, cross border and legal experts. Their first job will be to consider the Brexit implications on cross border arrangements for enforcement, advice and cooperation including the complex issues with CE marking and food labelling.
The Government's stated aim is that the 'Great Repeal Bill', with its devolved and delegated powers, will convert all directly applicable EU law to UK law before we exit the EU. This is supposed to ensure that no gaps are left in the law. The Think Tank intends to closely monitor the changes to ensure that this aim is upheld.
The Chartered Trading Standards Institute represents trading standards professionals working in the UK and overseas - in local authorities, business and consumer sectors and central government.
Sustain is campaigning for a positive Brexit which uses the opportunity to improve our food, farming and fishing.
Brexit: We stand at a cross-roads. When the UK leaves the European Union, will our leaders uphold good standards for our food, farming, fishing and trade deals? And will they agree a sensible deal with the EU? We need to make sure that they do!
