WWF shifts chemicals campaign to capitals

Environmental group WWF has launched a campaign - named Detox - to urge EU governments to strengthen the EU's draft Reach chemicals policy. The move comes as EU capitals take centre stage in the political process following Reach's formal proposal by the European Commission last October (EED 29/10/03). To mark the campaign's launch on Thursday, the NGO released a report highlighting human and environmental contamination by phthalates, phenolic compounds, brominated flame retardants and perfluorinated compounds. See Detox website and the report.
