ChemSec reacts on proposed changes to the REACH authorisation process

ChemSec has sent in comments to the European Commission on the proposed changes to streamline and simplify the authorisation process of the EU chemicals regulation REACH.

In the comments, ChemSec expresses its concerns that some of the changes, as proposed by the European Commission and discussed at CARACAL (Competent Authorities for REACH and CLP) in November this year, would jeopardise important intentions of the REACH regulation. Also, it would impose additional burdens on both companies and authorities.
