REACH - the Economic Aspect - an Interview
Calcalist, Economic Magazine
Gil Dror, Adv.
Calcalist magazine interviewed attorney Gil Dror and asked questions about the economic aspects of European chemicals legislation - REACH. Adv. Dror referred to the significant costs involved in implementing the legislation and the real possibility of closing the European market, followed by other markets around the world, to companies, mainly small, that could not meet the costs of applying the provisions of the legislation. One of the points in this context concerns the cost of registration of substances, which can be considerable - from thousands to tens of thousands of Euros. It is easy to imagine the cost when it comes to the need to register dozens and sometimes hundreds of substances. Additional costs are derived from the need to prepare the registration dossier. To do so may be necessary to perform complex experiments and participate in the forum for exchanging information (SIEF) and to that end the need to consult with scientific and legal support, which also has significant costs.
