Chemicals beyond control ensuring EU chemicals policy protects human health and the environment
As a result of the failure of current chemicals regulations we are all constantly exposed to a wide range of synthetic chemicals, some of which are known to be capable of causing adverse effects on the health of wildlife and on ourselves.
Under current chemicals regulations there are extremely large data gaps. We know very little about the properties, environmental fate or human health impacts of many man-made chemicals found in our environment. The proposed EU Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) legislation is intended to address that problem.
