Chemical firms keep up pressure on Reach
Chemicals association Cefic has called for further softening of the EU's draft Reach regulatory system for substances. A significantly watered-down outline for Reach that emerged from the Commision in September was "a step in the right direction", Cefic said on Wednesday. But "more substantial changes [are] still needed" to make the system "workable and less cumbersome", it insisted. See press release.
