The article presents news briefs on Europe, as of November 2003. In what the Commission calls a strategy to reduce diseases linked to environment factors, it uses a recent report from the European Environmental Agency showing that 60,000 deaths per year in large European cities are caused by long-term exposure to air pollution. The Commission has launched a European Environment and Health Strategy to reduce environment-caused disease. The proposed Directive on Investment Services and Regulated Markets became a Draft Directive when it emerged from its committee stages. The European Union has made another attempt toward seeing uniform levels of taxation across the European Union to remove the zero rate on children's clothing. Readers in the chemicals industry face the prospect of organizing new procedures for the testing of chemicals, past, present and future under the Registration, Evaluation and Assessment of Chemical proposal. The European Union introduced changes to its copyright laws. It has closed the loophole of being able to reproduce copyright material without a license for things like research and internal information purposes.
