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.
