EU Ministers support REACH test methods
EU Agriculture Ministers have given their support to European Commission proposals on test methods for substances under the new EU registration, evaluation and authorisation of chemicals (REACH) Regulation. The proposals cover test methods to be used to generate information on the intrinsic properties of substances. REACH covers a wide range of chemicals, including agrochemical intermediates and co-formulants. The pre-registration process starts on June 1st ( Agrow No 541, p 10).
