Orgalime appeals to EU Competitiveness Council on REACH

Published: 25 November 2005

Policies & Issues: Environment

As the debate within the European institutions gains pace Orgalime has expressed its concerns about the REACH proposal to the UK Presidency ahead of approaching meetings where the proposal will be discussed.

Further compromises can only succeed in disturbing the balance of the REACH system to the detriment of downstream users.

Orgalime therefore feels that any first reading agreement should aim to pave the way for a quality piece of legislation rather than opting for a speedy compromise solution that would give way to additional complications rather than tackle the already significant number of uncertainties existing in the present proposal.
