EU Chemicals Policy 2030

High-Level Conference

EU Chemicals Policy 2030

The Square, Brussels

27-28 June 2019

EU chemicals policy encompasses more than 40 pieces of legislation, covering the chemicals producing sector, but also related downstream industries that use chemicals, including the full lifecycle of products manufactured and those imported in Europe and the protection of the environment. It has evolved and expanded significantly since the adoption of the first chemicals-related directive in the late 1960s, illustrating the continuous commitment to achieving a high level of protection of human health and the environment, as well as to ensuring the free movement of chemicals in the internal market.

Over the past few years, the European Commission has been working on three major evaluations within the EU chemicals policy. The first is the REACH Review, published in March 2018, which evaluates REACH and proposes actions to improve its implementation. The second is an assessment of options for the improved interface between chemicals, products and waste legislation, published in 2018 within the context of the EU Circular Economy Action Plan. The third is a very broad evaluation (Fitness Check) of the most relevant EU chemicals legislation (excluding REACH), which will be published in the first half of June.

At the conference, the European Commission and its organising partner – the Ministry for Environment and Food of Denmark – are inviting all stakeholders involved in the EU chemicals policy:

  • To discuss the recent developments in the EU chemicals policy, taking stock of the overall situation and the current challenges
  • To discuss future steps and potential developments of the EU chemicals policy in order to improve the protection of human health and the environment – in line with the Sustainable Development agenda – as well as to support the good functioning of the internal market while enhancing the competitiveness and innovation of EU industry.
