Policy and Positions

ChemSec’s view is that the positives of a strict chemicals legislation, where hazardous chemicals are used to a minimum, far outweigh the negatives. And this is not only true in terms of human health and the environment. Surprisingly to some, even the business world benefits from strict legislation. Effective regulation of hazardous chemicals is also a major driver of innovation towards new and safe substances.

There are several different legislations, in the EU and around the world, that are intertwined and relates to chemicals. ChemSec is an accredited stakeholder within a number of policy institutions, committees and initiatives. In all these forums, we use our knowledge and position to influence and improve the way chemicals legislations are implemented in practice.
