Seven NGOs, including HEAL, sent this letter working on the protection of health to the REACH Committee regarding its discussion on the restriction of PFHxA under the REACH Regulation and on the restriction on lead in ammunition for hunting, outdoor sports shooting and in fishing.
Under the seventh Environmental Action Plan (7th EAP), the European Commission is committed to the development of a Union’s strategy for a non-toxic environment by the end of 2018. According to the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL), keeping that promise will be a game changer.
Following the publication of HEAL’s vision on Europe leading the way to a non-toxic environment, we wrote a letter to the European Commission outlying our vision for a European non-toxic environment strategy and a proposal for twelve priority actions.
A letter from the European Commission responding to this urge to action is available online.
