Trade and Industry
Breast Cancer UK supports a global economy that promotes a high standard of public health.
Whilst we do not have the resources to get involved in the huge range of issues that commerce, trade and industry covers, where we feel specific trade policies of industry activity may adversely effect breast cancer risk, we will voice concerns. For example, we are concerned that if the UK leaves the European Union's chemicals regulation regime, then the strength and effectiveness of UK chemicals regulation could be affected by future trade deals.
