BeST submits comments to European Commission’s Chemicals Strategy Consultation

On 17 June, BeST submitted feedback to the European Commission’s open consultation on the roadmap for its upcoming Chemicals Strategy.


The Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability is part of the European Green Deal. The strategy was initially planned to be published Q2/3 2020 but was delayed due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The strategy aims to ‘ensure a toxic-free environment…to protect citizens and the environment better against hazardous chemicals and encourage innovation for the development of safe and sustainable alternatives’. The Commission encourages industry to work with the EU to enhance public health, environmental protection, and to increase global competitiveness. The strategy will tie in the results from recent consultations on the fitness check of all chemicals legislation and the second REACH Review (REACH REFIT Evaluation).


BeST members are directly impacted by EU chemicals legislation and have therefore submitted comments to the European Commission’s plan to reduce risks associated with producing and using chemicals. In particular, BeST supports the aim of simplifying EU rules on chemicals by ensuring increased harmonisation of work between EU agencies and legislation and achieving the principle of ‘one substance – one assessment’.
