EEB | EEB contribution to the Inception Impact Assessment on the revision of REACH Regulation to help achieve a toxic- free environment

The EEB strongly supports the strengthening of REACH to make it more efficient, accelerate and trigger more effective protection, reduce burden on the authorities and instead, place the burden on the companies making economic profit from the manufacture, use and import of (hazardous) chemicals.
