European Parliament approves new chemicals law
Wednesday December 13, 6:15 am ET

STRASBOURG, France, Dec 13 (Reuters) - The European Parliament approved a landmark law on Wednesday to regulate toxic chemicals, putting it on track to enter force in 2007 after years of fierce debate between industry and environmentalists.

In the EU legislature 529 voted in favour of a compromise package on the bill agreed with EU ministers, while 98 voted against and 24 abstained.

Known as REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals), the bill was designed to make companies prove that substances in everyday products from cars to clothes to computers are safe.

The law is set to go into force on June 1, 2007.
