Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
Is the regulatory framework on risk in Europe harming or helping
innovation? Is it possible to agree criteria for the use of scientific
evidence in policy making? What do we mean by acceptable levels of risk?
How can we address public mistrust in industry funded research?
These and other equally challenging questions were
debated at a two-day conference organised in Brussels by PlasticsEurope on 5-6
November. The conference "Safety of Plastics: Let’s Talk about it!” brought
together senior figures from the worlds of industry, science, civil society and
politics to address concerns about the safety of plastics, along with broader
questions around the application of risk regulation in Europe.
The aim of the conference was to provide a platform
for different viewpoints and debate practical steps that can be taken to build
consensus on these sensitive issues. It also looked to establish an open and
constructive multi-stakeholder dialogue.
