Also establish a comprenhensive and transparent information on the nature and risks of the susbtances from supplier to end customer. Secure handling of chemicals by employees in the company by requiring compliance with safety standards. Strengthen the competitiveness of industry, in particular the European chemical industry, a key sector of the economy in Europe.
