Webinar, June 23: When is it justified to use hazardous chemicals?

In which products and processes can we accept the use of substances of concern? This is a burning hot question in the chemicals policy debate. The Chemical Strategy acknowledges the urgency to speed up the phaseout of hazardous chemicals, and one important step in that direction is to allow the most harmful chemicals only for “essential use”.

Here’s a chance for you to learn more about the concept and how it may be applied.

What you can expect:

  • An overview of the essential use concept in chemicals policy
  • Why we believe essential use could be game changer
  • A Q&A with ChemSec’s policy experts


When: Wednesday, June 23, 3 PM CET
Length: 45 minutes
Platform: Zoom
Speakers: Frida Hök, Deputy Director, ChemSec
Dr. Anna Lennquist, Senior Toxicologist, ChemSec
Moderator: Peter Pierrou, Head of Communications, ChemSec

A recording of this webinar will be made available afterwards.
