Coronavirus: HSE and the regulation of chemicals

The UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is continuing to provide services for regulating chemicals during the coronavirus outbreak.
As Britain’s statutory regulator of occupational health and safety The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has taken action to ensure that their important role continues effectively as the COVID-19 situation unfolds. These actions are being guided by the specific needs and characteristics of the various sectors we regulate and in line with advice from the UK Government, Public Health England, Public Health Wales and Health Protection Scotland.

The HSE made some administrative changes to the regulation of chemicals, these are set out below for each chemical regime, with updated details on how the HSE can be contacted.
We are all navigating uncharted waters as business and society faces up to the impact of COVID-19.  We very much hope you and your loved ones remain in good health.
