European Commission Issues Roadmap for Targeting Chemicals, Metals
The European Commission has issued a key document, Roadmap for SVHCs Identification and Implementation of REACH Risk Management Measures From Now to 2020, which describes a total of 440 substance risk assessments as a “worst case estimation” to which “adequate resources” will need to be dedicated.
