38 organisations are writing to the French Prime Minister to urge her to act for a rapid revision of REACh

For several months now, our organisations have been campaigning for a rapid revision of the EU chemicals regulation #REACh. REACh is the regulation that regulates the manufacture and use of chemicals in the EU. It came into force in 2007, but many flaws limit its effectiveness and show the importance of revising it as soon as possible to protect the health and environment of Europeans. Although the proposed revision was due to be published in 2022, it has been postponed several times. This delay is worrying in view of the forthcoming European elections in 2024: if the REACH review is not presented before the summer, there is a risk that the future Commission will not take up the dossier and an uncertainty as to the next composition of the European Parliament, which could be less committed to the issue.
