Annual Progress Report
VECAP RECOGNISED BY INDUSTRY AS AN OUTSTANDING TOOL IN PRODUCT STEWARDSHIP
INCREASED LEVEL OF PARTICIPATION IN VOLUNTARY PROGRAMME CONFIRMS FLAME RETARDANT INDUSTRY COMMITMENT TO IMPLEMENT BEST PRACTICES
The results of the Voluntary Emissions Control Action Programme (VECAP) Annual Progress Report, released today, revealed continued growth in participation to the programme, with 95% coverage of the sales volume. The number of VECAP-certified sites grew from three to five compared to last year, external certification being the gold standard in the level of commitment to VECAP.
"As a regulator, we can only but support proactive industry initiatives such as VECAP which are already demonstrating their effectiveness in managing chemicals throughout the manufacturing processes. Moreover, we believe VECAP's philosophy of adequate control throughout the supply chain will help businesses to adjust to the new REACH regulatory environment."Roberto Binetti, Istituto Superiore di Sanità
