Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability

The European Commission published a chemicals strategy for sustainability on 14 October 2020. It is part of the EU’s zero pollution ambition, which is a key commitment of the European Green Deal. The EU’s chemicals strategy aims to better protect citizens and the environment, and boost innovation for safe and sustainable chemicals.

An important aspect of the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability that was launched by the European Commission is the Revision of the REACH Regulation.

The main mission of REACH is to protect and safeguard human health and the environment from harmful substances while also providing legal stability and predictability. A predictable regulatory system is key for the industry to invest in the innovative technologies and processes that are required to reach the goals set out by the Green Deal.

The REACH Revision provides here a unique opportunity to do that and to strengthen the European chemical industry by prioritizing actions that will foster innovation, growth, safety and sustainability. In particular, ISOPA monitors the following issues: Mixture Assessment Factor, Polymers Registrations, Essential Uses and Generic Risk Assessment.
