    [TTIP] Cefic intervention at TTIP Stakeholders event, 15 July 2015 Chemicals Regulatory Cooperation

    24 July 2015

    The European chemical industry considers TTIP as an opportunity for better regulatory cooperation. This doesn't mean that current legislation should be harmonised on both sides of the Atlantic: this topic will not be addressed under TTIP. In practice, REACH will NOT be open for discussion and the process of implementation will NOT be slowed down. Mutual recognition as such will not be possible because regulations differ too much.
    Our proposal is to achieve scientific cooperation that will ensure data assessment submitted in one region will be similarly accepted for its scientific relevance, so greater compatibility. Also that confidential business information and intellectual property rights will be appropriately considered. As an example, we need to explore where evaluation of risk assessment methods would concur with the aim of simplifying the burden for the authorities and industry. This would avoid duplication of efforts and would increase efficiency.
