Reach regulation has made the EU 'considerably safer', says report: theparliament.com
The commission's five year review into the Reach regulation has found that the use of chemicals in the EU has become "considerably safer".

The registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals regulation (Reach) came into force in 2007 and was hailed as a significant piece of environmental legislation by the former environment commissioner Stavros Dimas.

Part of the regulation requires the commission to review progress and publish a general report looking at its operation and whether it is meeting its main objectives.

The report, released on Tuesday, found that "Reach functions well and delivers on all objectives that at present can be assessed," although it did highlight some areas which need to be improved.
