Federchimica, Sistema Moda Italia, Unione Nazionale Industria Conciaria and Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana have drafted a Position Paper to support the reasons of Dye-Staff Cooperation and its companies.
This is an important supplement to the Italian contribution to the European debate on the implementation of the REACH Regulation (EC 1907/2006 – Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals) and its effects on the SME dye industry system and its negative impacts in the Made in Italy’s fashion chain.
We ask a formal recognition by the national and European institutions of the objective difficulties that REACH puts on SMEs and of the work done so far in the definition of scientific results by companies that are part of Dye-Staff with the collaboration of the Mario Negri Institute for Pharmacological Research.
There is an urgent need for a decisive public initiative aimed to an economic support to the costs associated with the analysis and testing required for recordings.
Finally, it is vital to have an easier path in the REACH registration process for Companies that operate with this type of products.
