Abstract [en]

A number of suggestions are made in this article for amending the data requirements of the proposed European chemicals control system, REACH. These data requirements are shown to be insufficient for applying current criteria to classify substances according to their adverse effects. Use of production volume as a priority-setting criterion for data acquisition is questioned. Three alternative priority-setting mechanisms are proposed: chemical properties of the substance; results from lower tier testing; and incentives for voluntary testing. A new classification category ("insufficiently investigated") is also proposed. Substances in this category would be identified with a warning label.
