Revidera REACH för att uppnå en giftfri miljö i Europa

Hållbarhet & miljö
Samhälle & ekonomi

För att nå Zero pollution för en giftfri miljö krävs att reglerna för registrering, utvärdering, godkännande och begränsning av kemikalier i EU revideras, dvs. det som ingår i REACH-förordningen. I detta FRAM-seminarium träffar du Amie Svärd, ekonom vid Europeiska kommissionen, DG Grow, som kommer att presentera sitt nuvarande arbete med att revidera den europeiska kemikaliepolitiken. Seminariet hålls på engelska.

The European Green Deal sets out the ambition to reach zero pollution for a toxic-free environment. As part of this ambition, the chemicals strategy for sustainability announces actions to better protect people and the environment against hazardous chemicals and to encourage innovation to develop safe and sustainable alternatives.

Achieving these goals requires revising the rules governing the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals in the EU, i.e. the REACH regulation.
