Be at the center of the action with Chemical Watch News & Insight

The impact of the strategy cannot be overstated – it is the biggest shake-up to European chemicals policy since the introduction of REACH in 2007 and it will have a huge impact on industry for years to come.

With direct connections to European commissioners, European members of parliament, and the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), Chemical Watch News & Insight is uniquely positioned to help you understand the impact of the strategy on your business.
