Press briefing by Antonio Tajani on the REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) results for the 1st chemicals registration deadline of 30 November

0 views

On 01/12/2010, Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship, gave a press briefing to explain the result of the 1st REACH chemicals registration deadline of 30 November. He underlined that it marked a major step towards the safe management and use of chemicals throughout Europe. A large proportion of the total volume of chemicals produced and used in the EU, as well as the most dangerous chemicals, have now been registered at the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). The 30 November deadline for registration of widely-used chemicals was set by REACH, the Regulation for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. As a result of REACH, European industry will possess more in-depth knowledge of the potentially hazardous effects of the chemicals they are dealing with. This will lead to safer use of chemicals, increased industrial competitiveness and a cleaner environment. Under the REACH system companies cannot place a chemical substance they manufacture or import on the EU market unless it has been registered with ECHA within the applicable deadline.
