Description

This report sets out a quantification of socio-economic impacts on selected APEC economies of a 2009 European Commission decision to classify as hazardous 138 nickel-containing chemicals (1st ATP of EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging regulation).

This report contains the results of a socio-economic assessment which quantified the likely impact of this classification decision on nickel production and demand in a number of nickel producing and consuming APEC economies. The assessment involved extensive data gathering, analysis and modelling based on identified impact scenarios.
