LIFE NextFUMIGREEN welcomes the European Commission’s proposal on the reform of the evaluation of chemical substances

  • The European LIFE NextFUMIGREEN project is in favour of the Commission’s proposal on the reform of the ‘one substance, one evaluation’ chemicals evaluation
  • The proposal aims to streamline, simplify and make processes more transparent for better prevention

Brussels, 07 December 2023. The European Commission today adopted three legislative proposals to: streamline chemicals assessments across EU legislation; strengthen the knowledge base on chemicals; and ensure early detection of and action on emerging chemical risks. The European LIFE NextFUMIGREEN project, which advocates the use of natural fumigants, welcomes this proposal which will help to protect the environment and achieve safe and sustainable chemicals.

With this “one substance, one assessment” package, one of the main deliverables of the Chemicals Sustainability Strategy, important tasks will be reallocated between four EU agencies, ensuring consistent and transparent safety assessments of chemicals used in products such as medical devices, toys, food, pesticides and biocides.

Citizens, businesses and authorities will benefit from simplified and transparent access to information on chemicals. The new measures will bridge the gap between the identification of a potential risk and the necessary regulatory action. Ultimately, these measures will lead to better and faster protection of human health and the environment.

LIFE NextFUMIGREEN project, aligned with environmental protection

LIFE NextFUMIGREEN, as a project committed to protecting the environment by promoting natural fumigants as a green alternative to agrochemicals, welcomes the Commission’s proposal to better protect citizens and the environment and to drive innovation for safe and sustainable chemicals.


The European project LIFE NextFUMIGREEN actively promotes food safety by developing natural fumigants from plant extracts to control pests in intensive horticultural crops under glass. With the leadership of Fumihogar and with the collaboration of the Foundation for Agricultural Auxiliary Technologies, the Finnova Foundation, B&B Asesores Auditores Ambientales, Comercial Quimica Masso and BrioAgro Tech, the project has a total budget of 2,758,921.01 €, 60% subsidised by the LIFE Programme.
