Brussels (Belgium)


The ENVforum's fourth roundtable meeting involved 36 specially invited participants from ASEM member countries, and marked the beginning of the second phase of development of the ENVforum, which aims to contribute to the current global policy dialogue on chemicals management by promoting transparency, capacity building, and knowledge transfer between Asia and Europe.

An overall practical framework for future stronger Asia-Europe co-operation in chemicals management that aims at gathering professionals from the government, industry, civil society, and research sectors was proposed. Participants were also updated on the development of the European Commission's Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) regulation.
