EU commits to overhaul of chemicals legislation

The Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability promises the biggest reform since Reach

The European commission adopted the EU Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability on 14 October. This ambitious programme has been touted as the biggest reform of chemical regulations since Reach (registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals).

The strategy forms part of the EU’s flagship Green Deal environment programme, which in 2019 cemented the ambition to make the bloc’s economy sustainable, circular and climate-neutral by 2050.
