Highlights from the conference

Our The EU’s Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability: Key Issues for Industry virtual event, which took place on 13 January, provided delegates with valuable information on the European Commission’s chemicals strategy for sustainability

The one-day virtual event provided expert comment from the European Commission, Echa, the European Parliament, Cefic and ChemSec topics including: 

  • the road for implementation of the strategy;
  • the goal of one substance, one assessment: how it can be taken forward;
  • enforcement issues; and
  • expanding the use of generic risk assessment for consumer products.
