REACH - Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals is a fine example of acronym contrivance (although lacking the panache of a good pre hoc concoction). Not got the right words for something catchy? Just ignore the inconvenient word!
“[REACH] streamlines and improves the former legislative framework on chemicals of the European Union (EU). The main aims of REACH are to ensure a high level of protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, the promotion of alternative test methods, the free circulation of substances on the internal market and enhancing competitiveness and innovation.”
I guess you can’t blame them for trying to make it more interesting.
