Principles for a toxic free environment (2003)

Chemicals policies are increasingly focusing on the hazardous properties of chemicals and aiming for a toxic free environment. But what does this mean and how can it be done?

This booklet aims to give a basic understanding of these concepts and the principles that need to be included in the process. When consistently applied, they create the basis for a safer handling of chemicals, a policy truly aiming to avoid negative effects on human health and the environment.
