Technical regulations on chemical safety must be adopted in full compliance with EU regulations

05/ 11/ 2021
  On November 4, the EBA representatives met with Roman Filonenko, Deputy Director of the Department of Waste Management and Environmental Safety, Head of the Department of Environmental Safety of the Ministry of Environment. There was a discussion of the draft law On Chemical Safety and its bylaws - draft CMU Resolutions On Approval of Technical Regulations on Chemical Safety (REACH) and On Approval of Technical Regulations on Hazard Classification, Precautionary Labeling and Packaging of Chemical Products (CLP). Thus, the draft Law on Chemical Safety was developed by the Ministry of Environment and is currently being approved by the central executive bodies before its consideration by the Government. As for the draft resolutions developed by the Ministry of Economy, there is currently no active work on them. During the meeting, the EBA representatives read an official letter received by the Association from the Ministry of Economy that the approval and implementation of technical regulations REACH, and CLP requires the creation of a higher-level regulatory framework, namely the adoption of the draft Law On Chemical Safety”. Business, in turn, welcomes this approach and considers it to be balanced. Among other issues highlighted by the business was the need to introduce the most simplified procedure for the registration of chemicals (for example, sulfates contained in detergents, washing agents, etc.) that have already undergone a similar procedure in the European Union. It should be noted that the technical regulations of REACH and CLP are new to Ukraine, so they should be adopted in maximum compliance with European directives and standards (including the implementation of certain restrictions and their entry into force). After all, this is the key to simplifying barriers to trade and improving the business environment in Ukraine. During the meeting, representatives of the Ministry of Environment promised to share the latest version of the draft law On Chemical Safety and invited businesses to be more actively involved in working on the draft by providing their suggestions and comments. The European Business Association is grateful to the representatives of the Ministry of Environment for their openness to dialogue.   Be the first to learn about the latest EBA news with our Telegram-channel – EBAUkraine.
