TECHNICAL PAPER

CII recommendations for a more effective and consistent RMOA process

The present paper analyses the status of what has already been achieved by means of RMOAs and identifies areas where, after several years of positive experiences with RMOAs, there may be opportunities for enhancing their consistency and effectiveness.

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.
