The article focuses on the views by Alexander Graf Lambsdorff of Nordrbein-Westfalen, Germany, on the registration, evaluation and authorisation of chemicals (Reach) programme in the European Union. Lambsdorff said the programme will have more impact on smaller companies but may have less impact on major producers. He said producers of smaller-volume and new chemical products will face a harder registration process and that the European Chemical Agency will be overwhelmed with applications.
