The article focuses on the opposition of the American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union (AmChamEU) to a plan by the European Parliament and Council to publish a list of chemicals classified as chemicals of very high concern under the Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals process. According to AmChamEU, such a list would have a blacklist effect. The list has the possibility to cause massive product reformulations and business disruption. The chamber also recommended to only publish annually the list of priority substances of very high concern that will be subject to authorisation.
