Campden organises Brexit seminar

As the UK moves towards independence from the European Union there is much uncertainty as to what this might mean for the UK’s food industry, according to Campden BRI. In response, the company is hosting a seminar to be held on 1 December at which what Campden describes as an expert team from across the food industry will give their perspectives.

The seminar will also cover emerging food regulatory topics from outside the EU as they may well become more important as the regulatory landscape changes, the company said. There will also be a Trading Standards view on the enforcement of the Food Information to Consumer Regulations, a perspective on improvement notices and how their use interacts with primary authority arrangements.

“The seminar will give delegates an opportunity to get a heads up on what the UK’s exit from the EU potentially means to the food industry and food labelling,” said Event Director Linda Amirat. “Global regulatory awareness might become increasingly important as the UK moves on and it will be instructive to hear what is going on outside of the EU.”

“The implementation of FIC is behind most businesses now but not for trading standards, who have to enforce this law and give clarity to its content. Most people have heard of improvement notices but might be wondering about how they are being used; this will shed some light on that and explain how they interact with primary authority arrangements.”
