SHE Matters covers a wide range of legal topics which can be described as ‘‘regulatory law”, in particular environmental law, the law relating to health and safety at work, product safety law and food safety law.

Virtually all of these areas of UK law were heavily impacted by EU legislative initiatives during the 40-odd years that this country was a member of the European Communities, which then evolved into the European Union. While some of these initiatives involved the copying of features of existing UK legislation, many involved innovation from other legal traditions as far as the UK was concerned. It is fair to say that the UK regulatory landscape was radically transformed during our membership of the European Union.

In this winter edition, DLA Piper's Safety, Health and Environment lawyers, provide information on the EU commissions Proposal for a revised Product Liability Directive, the Product Duty Bill, Defra’s new product labelling requirements and much more.
