18 Jun Chemicals policy debate series – One substance, One assessment
Join us next week on 24 June from 13.00 – 14.00 for our webinar panel discussion on ‘One substance, One assessment’ as part of our chemicals policy debate series ‘Under the Microscope by Rud Pedersen’.
With the European Commission consulting on its Sustainable Chemicals Strategy road map we will be discussing the concept of ‘One substance, One assessment’ as the EU develops the next phase of its chemicals policy. While REACH is seen as the centrepiece of global chemicals regulation, questions of its coherence and consistency with other legislation, such as RoHS and Eco-Design, remain. During the debate, we will be addressing how the current systems can and should be improved considering recent studies and reviews from the Commission as well as industry experience.
The guest speakers will be:
- Jack de Bruijn, Director of Prioritisation and Integration, European Chemicals Agency
- Kevin Bradley, Secretary General, International Bromine Council
- Hans Meijer, Coordinator for Chemicals, Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, Netherlands
- Violaine Verougstraete, Chemicals Management Director, Eurometaux
Moderation by James Stevens, Managing Partner of Rud Pedersen Public Affairs Brussels.
