EU Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS)

A European Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS) was adopted by the Commission on 14 October 2020, as the first step towards the “zero pollution” ambition, which is a key commitment of the European Green Deal and aims to better protect citizens and the environment from harmful chemicals, and boost innovation by promoting the use of safer and more sustainable chemicals.

The European Commission published a Restrictions Roadmap under the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability on 25 April 2022 that provides detailed information on all ongoing work on future restrictions under the EU chemical legislation.

This Roadmap prioritizes group restrictions for the most harmful substances to human health and the environment, as set out in the European Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS), published on October 2020. The CSS is part of the EU’s zero pollution ambition, which is a key commitment of the European Green Deal with the objective to prioritise carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic substances (CMRs), endocrine disruptors, persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) and very persistent and very bioaccumulative (vPvB) substances, immunotoxicants, neurotoxicants, substances toxic to specific organs and respiratory sensitisers substances for (group) restrictions’ for all uses.
