The protection of human health and the environment

Recent decades have seen an extensive range of chemical legislation introduced across the EU and the UK. The principal aims of these pieces of legislation are to ensure a high level of protection of human health and the environment with respect to the use of chemicals.

The range of legislation now in force is substantial. For example, within the EU, there are now more than 50 separate pieces of chemicals legislation in place. Businesses involved in chemical supply chains need to be aware of which legislation they hold obligations to, what these obligations are and how they must be satisfied. This is crucial for ensuring businesses are acting in compliance and upholding legal standards to help ensure their activities do not cause undue harm to human health or the environment.

Extensive experience in chemicals management

Enviresearch’s regulatory professionals have extensive experience in chemicals management with respect to achieving compliance under key EU chemicals regulations, including the Plant Protection Products Regulation, Biocidal Products Regulation, REACH and CLP regulations. Our experts can help identify which regulations a chemical substance or mixture falls within the scope of, the obligations that a business holds under these regulations, and help plan and implement regulatory strategies to achieve and maintain ongoing compliance. Since the UK’s exit from the EU, our professionals have continued to work with businesses to achieve compliance under the equivalent, stand-alone GB regulations.
