Top stories in this month's briefing:

  • We analyse Brazil's proposed industrial chemicals policy and look at how those involved agreed on and established a draft text.
  • Since the EU's RoHS was adopted in 2003, regulations to restrict certain substances in electronics have branched out across Asia. We look at how these differ from country to country. 
  • Chemicals management is a material risk, according to some investors. We look at how investor organisations are monitoring chemicals management standards at companies.
  • In our REACH & CLP hub this month, REACHLaw explains the purpose of a risk management option analysis (RMOA) and how companies can manage the outcomes.
  • With more than 20 years experience working in Brussels on chemicals policy, Uta Jensen-Korte, former director general of Fecc, the European Association of Chemicals Distributors, takes on our guest column spot and offers insight into how REACH and CLP came to be.
