Private Sector: EU Law

Question for Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

UIN 106422, tabled on 6 October 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to the position paper, Continuity in the availability of goods for the EU and the UK: Position Paper, published on 21 August 2017, whether it is his policy that EU compliance responsible persons in UK private sector companies must be EU-based; and what assessment his Department has made on the effect of such a policy on employment levels.

The future relationship between the UK and the EU in respect to compliance activities is a matter for future negotiations. It would not be appropriate to pre-judge the outcome of those negotiations.
