The aim of this capacity building project in the field of sound management of chemicals is to increase the number of transposed EU environmental legislation into Georgian national legislation. The preparation of the legislative framework and the strengthening of the implementation and control capacities of Georgian institutions will create prerequisites for a future systemic solution for the proper management of chemicals at a standard international level in line with EU rules.
The project will outline the existing legislation and competencies of individual authorities on the management of chemical substances in Georgia, a concept for the harmonization of existing legislation with the requirements of the EU REACH and CLP regulations will be drawn up. Also a draft of Chemical Substances Act and a proposal for a methodology for effective control of obligations of these Regulations will be elaborated. Within the project, the capacity of Georgian institutions and selected groups of manufacturers, users, importers and distributors of chemicals in the area of chemical marketing will be strengthened through training and workshops.
