The Manual: Chapter 8 – Chemicals

This publication forms a section of the Manual of European Environmental Policy, published by IEEP in 2012. This chapter on chemicals focuses on the two main strands of EU chemicals policy: REACH – (Registration, evaluation, authorisation of restricted chemicals) and CLP – (classification, labelling and packaging). The chapter also covers the different legislation that aims to reduce the negative impact of chemicals to the environment and humans, while maintaining a functioning internal market. The sections discuss the authorisation, transportation, standardisation, and sustainable use of dangerous goods, chemicals and substances.
