The European Chemical Society has recently answered to the European Commission’s public consultation with regards to the upcoming repeal on the Mercury Regulation.
Relying on its previous contribution to the public consultation for the last Mercury Regulation repeal in 2014, EuChemS could provide its views on the Commission’s plan for a complete Mercury phasing-down process to be completed by 2030.
While supporting the European Commission’s initiative and its relevance with the European Green Deal and the European Water Directive (amongst others), EuChemS reiterated some reservations about the total elimination of Mercury use in specific professional sectors where it might remain the best-known option to this day.
The crucial need for international scientific cooperation was also addressed.
