||The purpose of the Trade Union Priority List is to contribute to the practical implementation of REACH, in particular the authorisation procedure by proposing substances of very high concern which, from a trade union perspective, should have priority for inclusion in the candidate list and potentially in the authorisation list. The resulting Trade Union List includes 568 substances. The European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) took a very clear stance in favour of this reform because, by encouraging industry to develop safer substances, REACH combines increased competitiveness for European industry with improved protection of workers, consumers and the environment.
