Chemicals strategy for sustainability
The European Commission has just published a communication on the chemicals strategy for sustainability. This strategy aims to reduce the risks associated with producing and using chemicals.
It will simplify and strengthen EU rules on chemicals, and review how EU agencies and scientific bodies can work together towards a process where substances are only reviewed by one agency.
This will help to:
- better protect people and the environment from hazardous chemicals
- encourage the development of safe and sustainable alternatives
- make it even easier to trade safe chemicals within the EU.
