Global Business Briefing – April 2016
The briefing is available to registered subscribers only.
Top stories in this month's Briefing
- An OECD report shows that a shift in PFCA production to emerging economies, has more than offset reductions of their emissions in developed countries. We look at the reason behind this and what needs to be done.
- Read-across is an alternative approach to filling data-gaps in REACH registrations – we find out why it is gaining support from academics and industry
- In the next instalment of our sector focus series, we find out what challenges the fragrance industry faces in becoming more transparent by revealing ingredients
- In a Q&A this month, former head of REACH Bureau at the Dutch National Institute for Health and Environment (RIVM), Dick Sijm, talks about the advances made in chemical safety and what still needs to be done
- And holding our guest column spot, the US EPA’s director of the Office of Science Coordination and Policy, David Dix, explains how the agency is moving forward with EDC screening and testing
