MCEC and the Regulatory Landscape

European chemicals legislation is often regarded as the most ambitious in the world. This regulatory framework, including the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals Regulation (REACH), the Classification, Labeling and Packaging Regulation (CLP), and the Biocidal Product Regulation (BPR), was introduced with the aim of ensuring the highest level of protection possible to the environment and human health while simultaneously preserving and fostering the EU Single Market.
