Dutch Cabinet to increase their grip on hazardous substances

Current policy on hazardous substances is not sufficient to adequately control the risks to people and the physical environment. The use and number of hazardous substances is increasing, as is the reuse of products containing such substances. This is why new policy is needed, according to the Council for the Environment and Infrastructure (Rli), in its advisory report ‘A grip on hazardous substances’, presented on 11 March 2020 to Minister Van Veldhoven of Housing and the Environment.
