The article reports that the U.S.-based National Petrochemical and Refiners Association (NPRA) is calling on the European Commission to accept existing test data to prevent the need for more costly analysis, as part of the Reach registration process. According to David Friedman, director of petrochemical advocacy at the NPRA, the use of existing Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development data would go some way to making Reach more workable.
