ECHA has launched a public consultation on the draft Strategic Plan for the Agency. Consultation will close on 4 May 2018.
The Strategic Plan outlines the priorities of ECHA for the next five-year period. The plan lists three strategic priorities that are to be achieved with a set of enabling components: i) Identification and risk management of substances of concern; ii) Safe and sustainable use of chemicals by industry; iii) Sustainable management of chemicals through the implementation of EU legislation.
Once finalised, the strategic plan becomes the multi-annual part of the Programming Documents of the Agency for 2019-2021 and beyond. Steered by the strategy, the Agency will establish annual Work Programmes containing specific actions and outputs planned for each year. The areas of operation in the Strategic Plan per each strategic objective and the enabling components aim at providing a framework for the annual Work Programmes and are hence of more generic nature.
The draft Strategic Plan is available under this link.
