The EEB supports the Commissions’ proposals for revision of REACH registration and evaluation. Registration and Evaluation are the pillars on which risk management measures are built under REACH. However, the high level of non-compliance is a major bottleneck in the implementation of REACH and a serious cause for delays in implementing regulatory risk management measures, leaving people and the environment exposed to potentially toxic chemicals for many years. To implement these commitments and to keep the revision up to the same level of ambition expressed in the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability, to achieve a toxic-free environment and to speed up the transition to safe and sustainable chemicals and products, the EEB makes recommendations to the Commission to be considered in its impact assessment.
