HSE begins the preparation of two restriction dossiers
HSE has updated the Registry of Restriction Intentions to notify that it is preparing two restriction dossiers, following a request from Defra with the consent of the Scottish and Welsh governments.
The dossiers will assess the risks of lead in ammunition; and of substances in tattoo inks and permanent make-up.
HSE will propose restrictions if these dossiers show that restriction is the most appropriate measure for addressing the identified risks.
The finalised dossiers, including any restriction proposals, will be published on HSE's website, expected to be in April 2022.
Public consultations will then begin, during which interested parties will be able to submit comments on the restriction proposals.
