Great Britain falling further behind EU protections on chemicals

Your substances


CHEM Trust has long had concerns that the UK system of chemical management (UK REACH) would not have the regulatory capacity to match EU action on chemicals; with just a fraction of its budget and staff and without access to the European Chemical Agency’s (ECHA) chemical safety database. The UK has also shown less willingness to regulate than the EU.

These concerns are fast becoming the reality of the new UK REACH system, despite UK Government promises to maintain protections and even to provide a ‘better’ system.
