REACH - Consequences for European Industry and the Environment (English)
Abstract [sv]

REACH är EU:s nya kemikalielag vilken ska försöka att få till en säkrare kemikaliehantering. Målet med denna rapport har varit att se vilka effekter som REACH kan ge för europeisk industri och miljön, och framför allt att undersöka vilka möjliga fördelar som REACH skulle kunna ge inom dessa områden.

De slutsatser som dragits är att:

- Den viktigaste fördelen med REACH är att en tillförlitlig källa byggs upp med utökad information kring kemikalier som idag används på den europeiska marknaden.

- Ett enhetligt klassificerings- och märkningsregister införs inom EU vilket kommer att underlätta riskbedömningar av kemikalier.

- REACH bidrar till en större medvetenhet inom industrin kring farligheten hos vissa kemikalier, vilket förmodligen kommer att leda till att man blir försiktigare med sin kemikalieanvändning.

- Kravet om godkännande för användning av särskilt farliga kemikalier kommer säkerligen att vara pådrivande för att industrin ska välja kemikalier med mindre farliga egenskaper.

Abstract [en]

REACH is a new EU legislation which purpose is to promote safe handling of chemicals. The intention with this report was to investigate the possible effects that REACH might have for European industry and the environment, and especially to look for benefits within these areas.

The conclusions are as follows:

- The most important advantage with REACH is that a reliable source is made available for the chemicals industry, with extended information on chemicals that are currently used in a wide range throughout the European market.

- Companies connected to the chemicals industry see a huge advantage in the fact that REACH will contribute to a standardized classification and labelling inventory that will apply in the European Union.

- There will be a greater awareness within industry on how dangerous some chemicals actually are that nowadays are commonly used. This will probably lead to that the industry becomes more cautious with its chemical use.

- The demand for approval of use of certain chemicals, with properties of very high concern, will probably act as a driving force to encourage industry to choose chemicals with less harmful effects.
