Radiation curing : Health, safety and environment aspects.
Health and environmental issues do not only affect the competitiveness of the chemical industry in Europe, but also restrict the free trade of products and technologies due to the lack of harmonisation of legislation around the world.
The paper covers European (EU) regulatory aspects relevant to RadCure products, such as the implementation of the 7th Amendment of Council Directive 67/548/EEC (Existing Chemicals Programme, Risk Assessment Directive, OECD polymer definition,) and current regulatory developments (further extension of EC Directive 90/128 governing food contract applications, environmental labelling).
The paper will also describe the strategy developed by European chemical suppliers within the RadTech association to comply with EU Directives.
Emphasis will be put on topics which should be addressed globally and for which global harmonisation should be sought.
This is a key step for the global introduction of new products and technologies at an acceptable cost, which is essential for the long-term sustainability of the RadCure and coating industries.
