How the REFIT process can make chemical legislations stimulate business and protect health and environment at the same time (June 2016)

In the case of chemical legislation, the REFIT process can have two possible outcomes: either it will iron out any inconsistencies in different chemical frameworks, making it easier for companies to comply, but also reducing protection from hazardous chemicals for the environment and citizens. Or, it will make it easier for businesses to comply and heighten the level of protection at the same time.

This paper will show you that the latter is the most rational way forward. Not only from the standpoint of citizen health and the environment, but also from an economic perspective.
