This paper discusses the need for wider reform of UK chemicals policy following exit of the UK from the EU, focusing on chemical flame retardants as an example. Exposure to these chemicals presents a range of human environmental health issues and reveals important limitations in the UK’s approach to reconciling fire safety with environmental and public health protections. Key strategic issues that would advance evidence-informed policy in this area are identified.
