The U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) latest effort to revise its LEED 2012 building rating system indicates that a new material resource credit that would measure U.S. products sold in North America by their ability to meet the qualifications set up by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) under their REACH program would be established. In last week's CI CyberNews CyberPoll, we asked readers whether this measure is necessary. All respondents (100%) were in agreement: the revision is unnecessary.

One reader commented, "I see no reason why a product made in America for use by Americans should be subject to rules/regulations from an outside agency."

Another reader said, "This sounds like a lot of extra paperwork and regulation to me!"
