European Commission fails to publish outcome of a fitness check on Europe’s chemicals legislation
Mere weeks before a high-level conference on the future of the European Union’s chemicals policy, the European Commission has not yet published the ‘raison-d’être’ for the event: the outcome of an evaluation of all chemicals policies except REACH.
A cross-country group of twenty-seven civil society organisations have expressed their concerns about this delay. In a letter to the European Commission, they highlight that this failure adds to another missed deadline: the delivery of a European non-toxic environment strategy, which the Commission committed to through the seventh Environmental Action Programme.
