UK Consultation on the New EU Chemicals Strategy, REACH

07 June 2004

Submission to Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, together with the Department of Trade and Industry and the Devolved Administrations for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The RSC finds the latest version of the EU Chemicals Legislation setting out the proposed regulations to be more balanced and more pragmatic than earlier versions. However, we still have significant concerns about the workability of some aspects of the proposal, and we believe that more information and guidance is required if it is to achieve its intended objectives.
