Chemical pollution: EU Commission casts doubt over future of a toxic-free Green Deal due to German industry pressure
It is being reported that the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen will decide, in a meeting on Tuesday, to delay the planned publication of a revised EU chemicals law REACH from early 2023 to the end of 2023.
Update 18th October: As previewed in this blog, the Commission’s work plan for 2023 published on 18th October states that the Commission aims to publish the revised REACH proposal in Quarter 4 2023, a delay on previous plans. However, Commissioner Šefcovic stated to the European Parliament that “I can assure you that once this file is ready, we will not hesitate, we will present it to the Parliament and to the Council”. CHEM Trust welcomes this commitment and encourages the Commission to move rapidly to complete and publish the legislative proposal.
