1. A reform of Europe’s chemical regulatory framework (REACH) delayed
A reform of Europe’s chemical regulatory framework, known as REACH, has been delayed by a year, causing consternation about the European Union’s progress on controlling and harmful chemicals impacting human and environmental health. This effectively means that the reform will not be completed during the current European Commission’s term.

CLP Regulation revision proposal COM(2022) 748 final
The CLP Regulation revision package aims to:
(i)ensure that all hazardous chemicals, including those with ED, PBT, vPvB, PMT and vPvM properties, are classified adequately and uniformly throughout the EU;
(ii)improve the efficiency of hazard communication by making labels more accessible and understandable for users of chemicals, and provide companies with more flexibility, thereby reducing the administrative burden without lowering safety levels;
(iii)make sure that the rules on chemical hazard classification and communication are applied by all relevant actors in the supply chain.
