Extension of the EU Roadmap on Carcinogens

Your substances


On 28 November 2019, several organisations, including the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC), extended the EU Roadmap on Carcinogens in Helsinki. The objective of this voluntary action scheme is to raise awareness amongst workers and employers about the risks of exposure to carcinogens.

The initiative was first launched in May 2016 in Amsterdam under the Dutch EU Presidency and was then continued under other presidencies. It was first extended by Austria in Vienna and now by Finland in Helsinki. The Roadmap will then pass to Berlin, as Germany (after Croatia) will hold the rotating presidency of the Council of the EU until the end of 2020.
