The REACH baseline study – 5 years update – Comprehensive study report
In 2012 the EU legislation on chemicals, known as REACH (Registration, Authorisation and restriction of CHemicals), is in force since 5 years. As a follow-up to the Eurostat study of 2009 which was published with data before REACH was in place, this 2012 comprehensive report presents the results and the methodology of the update and answers two key questions on the effectiveness of REACH: Does REACH lead to a reduction of the risks which are posed by chemicals to humans and the environment? Does REACH lead to an improvement of the data? A summary report is also published in the series 'Methodologies and working papers'.
