The European Chemicals Agency, ECHA, has published its draft 5-year plan and is inviting comments on it in the form of a public consultation on its Multi-Annual Work Programme for 2014-2018. Responses to the consultation are welcomed.

ECHA are responsible for REACH, CLP, Biocides and PIC (legislation controlling the import and export of chemicals covered under the international Rotterdam Convention on dangerous chemicals).

ECHA have noted, correctly, that the information they gather and disseminate on chemicals is only as good as that provided by industry. One of the major issues of note is of poor substance identity – this is a measurement issue and the ability to unambiguously identify a substance underpins the whole registration and enforcement process. Clearly this is an area where progress still needs to be made.
