Executive Summaries FEICA Priorities - Reform of the restriction and authorisation process: Essential use concept
FEICA has prepared different Executive Summaries treating as priorities certain initiatives of the European Commission. This Executive Summary treats the essential use concept, which the European Commission intends to apply to all relevant risk-management legislation. The concept now centres on regulating substances in terms of their societal function regarding human health and safety. Some benefits are anticipated, for example, the speeding up of the authorisation process, and clarity for stakeholders concerning chemical safety and sustainability.
