Latest on circular economy and chemicals

Posted on 13.07.2023

On 12 July, the latest Circular Economy developments and next steps will be debated following the adoption of the Commission’s proposal for a targeted amendment of EU Directive 2008/98/EC on waste and the launch of a public consultation on the review of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive.

Regarding the pending REACH authorisation of DEHP, MedTech Europe welcomes the positive opinion of the REACH Committee of extending the ‘latest application date’ and the ‘sunset date’ to the new transition period of the sector-specific Medical Devices Regulation. Regulatory consistency supports successful implementation.
