The bill dealing with the new chemicals policy of the European Union passed the second reading
On the motion of the Environmental Committee as the leading committee, the second reading of the Bill on Amendments to the Chemicals Act (388 SE), initiated by the Government, was concluded. The purpose of the Bill is to create conditions for the implementation of the new EU chemicals policy in Estonia. As a result, the chemicals safety will increase and the risks to human health, environment and property will decrease. Also the general safety level will increase in regions where ammonium nitrate is transported and handled, first of all in ports and on the railroad. The Bill obliges to pay more attention than before to avoiding possible disasters already within the framework of planning and construction activities. The law will improve informing the public of danger of disaster and give people the possibility to take part in shaping the safety of their environment. The Bill was sent to the third reading.
