How the UK exits the European Union will undoubtedly have a huge effect on our industry. At the moment, it is less than clear how this will happen so our job during this time of transition is to do our best to highlight the issues facing our industry.

We know that Government is keen to hear the views of business during this period so we will be using all our networks and contacts to put forward the voice of the aquatics industry.

Undoubtedly there will be difficulties ahead, particularly as the European Union continues to make laws that will continue to affect the UK until we leave.

What we are doing

  • Currently, we are raising issues for industry with Government departments about what is planned in the Great Repeal Bill. We think this could be a good opportunity to for a rethink on issues such as the sales ban on water hyacinth. The key is to engage at all levels of UK Government to seek to reduce the regulatory burden while ensuring welfare standards are maintained.

Tell us what you think

We are currently asking the industry for your thoughts about what we should be working towards as we leave the European Union. Please take a few minutes to fill in our survey below.
