The CII is supported by over 60 organisations: manufacturers and downstream users of chemicals, large companies and SMEs.

We represent industry sectors and technologies which contribute to competitiveness, economic growth and jobs in the EU.

Better regulation in chemicals is about using the most effective risk management option for a specific risk.

The CII is calling for a tailor-made and targeted use of REACH Authorisation.

Workplace legislation is the most targeted tool for potential risks limited to the workplace.

Joint SMEUnited and CII views on DGs ENV-GROW paper on REACH Restriction and OSH OELVs

SMEUnited and the CII welcome the Commission’s initiative to clarify the REACH-OSH interface and consider that transparent procedures and criteria should be used when selecting the most appropriate regulatory options. We welcome the DGs ENV-GROW’s thought-starter to promote a decision tree that would clarify the interface and optimise worker protection.


CII recommendations regarding the EU Strategic Framework on Health and Safety at Work (2021-2027)

The CII fully supports a strong EU framework for Occupational Health and Safety (OSH) that strives for a consistent improvement of the health and safety of workers across Europe. To ensure an ever-stronger OSH framework and its implementation in the EU, the CII recommends clarifying of the interface between REACH and OSH legislations, as well as improving the predictability and consistency of RMOAs.
