Representatives of the twinning partners, the Swedish Chemical Agency and Co-ordinator of the Italian authorities presented the results within chemical management and prevention and control of major accidents.
The purpose of this project has been to assist in setting up the national chemical safety system according to the EU legislation and practice, with emphasis on:
- Competent authorities for the safe management of chemicals, and for the prevention and control of major chemical accidents
- Transposing relevant EU chemicals legislation into the Croatian legislation
