REACH: Combining Harmonization and Dynamism in the Regulation of Chemicals.
Environmental Protection: European Law and Governance.
Oxford University Press
The volume and complexity of the EU's recent REACH regulation, concerning chemicals, is such that a lengthy book would be required to offer a full exposition and analysis. Running to 141 articles, seventeen annexes, and ten appendices, the densely printed Official Journal text amounts to 280 pages. This chapter focuses upon the governance approach embodied in the regulation and upon certain key features ('core elements') which characterize this. The core elements considered are industry responsibility, contestability, substitution, provisionality, and transparency.
