Regulation on export and import

Regulation (EU) No 649/2012 of the European Parliament and the Council of 4 July 2012 concerning the export and import of hazardous chemicals is the latest in a series of measures over the years that seek to address international trade with hazardous chemicals.

The Regulation reaffirms the Union’s commitment towards ensuring proper control in the trade and use of hazardous chemicals at the global level, based on the principle that it should help to protect human health and the environment beyond its borders as well as within.
