ABSTRACT
The article reports on criticisms toward vote outcomes for Reach, a legislation governing the chemical industry in Europe. Main Perroy of Cefic said that the vote would hamper the ability of Reach to achieve its goals to drive both greater safety of products and competitiveness of the European industry. In France, the UIC called on the environment committee to show reason in its demand for substitution. American Chemistry Council president and CEO Jack Gerard expressed dislike at the outcome, calling it an unfortunate setback.
