The article focuses on the expression of concern by the environmental group WWF regarding the possibility that some chemicals which have been identified as persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) may escape regulation under Reach. According to WWF, PBT must be recognised according to specific criteria put forward in the draft Reach legislation. However, a number of substances that have been recognised as PBT under internationally recognised guidelines, will not meet the Reach criteria.
