Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability

On 2 July, A.I.S.E., together with several industry sectors and under the lead of CEFIC, co-signed a letter with a call that the development of the Chemical Strategy for Sustainability should not lead to a (full) re-opening of the REACH legislation. The creation of a new multi-stakeholder platform is encouraged to facilitate a structured dialogue between the Commission, Member States, representatives from the European Parliament, and experts from industry, downstream users, consumer organisations and NGOs. The aim is to explore how adjustments could be made to the legislative framework, if needed, without major disruption for the value chains that rely on chemicals.
