The CII welcomes the Council Conclusions of 10 December 2019 calling for a clarification of the REACH-OSH Interface

The Cross-Industry Initiative for better regulation in chemicals management (CII) welcomes the Council’s Conclusions 'A New EU Strategic Framework on Health and Safety at Work: Improving the implementation of Occupational Safety and Health in the EU' which emphasize the importance of the regulatory framework of Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) and the need to further clarify the interface between OSH and REACH.


CII comments about the CARACAL Paper on the interface of REACH and OSH legislation

The CII considers that the CARACAL Paper does not address all key issues and that a Common Understanding Paper on REACH and OSH is needed. In this document, the CII also calls for Guidance on RMOAs.
