The article reports that agreement on the European Union's chemical legislation Reach is likely to be arrived at by December 2006, if the European Parliament gets its way. The Parliament still needs to push through a number of amendments that the Council has not accepted. These include help for small and medium-sized enterprises and compulsory evaluation of substances likely to be carcinogenic, mutagenic or reprotoxic as well as a European quality mark for products that meet Reach criteria.
