“How can I be sure that with all the new chemicals used in products, my health won’t be affected?”

In 2006, a new set of rules on the manufacturing, marketing, import and use of chemical substances in the EU was adopted. Known as the "REACH" (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals) framework, these rules involve safety checks on some 30 000 chemical substances in use today, and companies have to provide evidence to demonstrate that their use is safe for people and the environment.
