Comments on CA/MS/34/2020 ´Towards a pragmatic procedure to regulate the risks of exposure to unintended combinations of chemicals in the EU´

It has been long overdue for the EU to agree a regulatory way forward to address and manage the risks from combined exposures to chemicals in order to increase the protection of human health and the environment.

EU decision makers have neglected this topic for many years and a Commission report on the way forward agreed on in 20121 and originally promised for 2015 has still not seen the light of day. In 2019 the Council conclusions were a stark reminder of this total neglect.2 Now it is high time to take these decisions in the context of the upcoming Chemical Strategy for Sustainability and the European Green Deal.
