Sonae Communication
Sonae discussed the future of chemicals policy
28 March 2017

Last 22 March, Sonae was in Brussels for the "Future of chemicals policy” workshop organized by EuroCommerce. This event gathered representatives of the European Commission, the European Chemicals Agency, retailers and wholesalers to discuss the challenges of ensuring legal compliance with the EU chemicals legislation.

Duarte Rocha, Head of International Quality Control Department, shared the experience of Sonae as an international retailer sourcing and selling a wide range of products across most European countries. Working towards more safety for the consumers and the environment is a major concern for Sonae and, since the adoption of the first EU chemicals legislation (ten years ago), the company proactively built business solutions to ensure that products are properly assessed, packaged and labelled before they are available in stores. Sonae is constantly optimizing its communication with suppliers to share knowledge about composition and uses of products but is also engaging with consumers to answer to information requests.

This workshop was a very useful opportunity to share best practices with other retail companies and to discuss about the best way forward for chemicals regulations with representatives of the EU institutions.
