Abstract

This report informs about potential impacts of the European regulation concerning the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals REACH (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006) in the New Member States. It consists of two parts: 1) "Implementation of REACH in the New Member States - Part one: overview of the chemical and specialty chemical sector in the New Member States", and 2) "Implementation of REACH in the New Member States - Part two: Business case studies in selected New Member States". This first report gives a general overview of the chemical sector in all New Member States and provides key macroeconomic data for the description of the chemical sector as a whole in each of the countries. This includes the sectors development, major developments including trade with EU-15 and non-EU countries, and a description of sub-sectors according to NACE categories. Furthermore, the first report describes the impact on the chemical industry through the implementation of the Chemicals Acquis and the Accession to the EU, and derives the implications for the adoption of REACH in the New Member States. Finally, the report outlines REACH Impact studies which are available in the New Member States.
