The article discusses the European Union's (EU) Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (Reach) deal. A deal is what EU wants before Reach receives a second reading. But Guido Sacconi is said to have poured cold water on the presidency's compromise plans because it does not reflect parliament's concerns. At the same time, the European Bureau of Consumers' Union (BEUC) has called on politicians not to reduce the strength of Reach, and to give priority to substitution.
