The European Union’s REACH Regulation places the responsibility for the safety of chemicals on industries. Authorities identify and regulate risks at EU level as a safety net to industries chemicals management and control the implementation of legal provisions.
However, many companies, in particular small and medium sized companies using substances and mixtures in their processes still lack information and understanding of chemicals risk management and their legal obligations.
The Life Fit for REACH supported companies in improving their knowledge and skills on chemicals risk management and, where possible, to substitute the most hazardous substances they use. It provided information, practical tools and concrete advice to companies in the Baltic States.
