Bearing in mind the results of the evaluation of the interdepartmental implementation of the chemicals legislation carried out in 2013 the Federal Council mandated the federal authorities to prepare a common strategy.
The present strategy expresses the common understanding of the federal authorities involved in the implementation of the chemicals legislation at the federal level in regard to chemical safety, and is intended to strengthen cooperation. It builds up trust externally as the objectives pursued are clearly demonstrated to stakeholders, other federal authorities and politicians. The strategy has been prepared by the five federal authorities (FOPH, FSVO, FOEN, FOAG and SECO) involved in the federal implementation of the chemicals legislation and will be put in place jointly.
