Event details

Ninth meeting of the Exchange Network on Exposure Scenarios (ENES)

5-6 November 2015 | Brussels

Purpose

ENES9 reported on the product developments to improve information on use and exposure in the communication supply chain under REACH as part of the CSR/ES Roadmap.

Key topics:

1.    Providing registrants, downstream users and Member State authorities with details on the products developed under the CSR/ES Roadmap to improve information on use and exposure under REACH. In particular, products for:

  • providing data on existing conditions of use to registrants;
  • formulators and  users of mixtures.

2.    Explaining why those products are necessary and how they can be used.

3.    Promoting the Roadmap's products among the different REACH actors.
