Use maps

This library includes the use description and the input parameters for workers exposure assessment (SWEDs), for consumers exposure assessment (SCEDs) and for environmental exposure assessment (SPERCs), made available by sector organisations for their typical uses.

The information aims at supporting registrants in preparing their chemical safety assessments (CSAs). Registrants will find here the use description for key typical products, as agreed at sector level, as well as the associated conditions of use. This provides a realistic basis for their chemical safety assessment.

To stay informed about new submissions to the library or updates, please subscribe to ECHA Weekly.

The library is structured by sector and product. Clicking on a sector name below will give you access to the following information:

  • Background information on the use map coverage
  • Direct access to use map files (downloadable for free).

Sectors invite registrants to provide feedback on their use maps. The sectors and ECHA are also available to respond to specific questions.

The package available does not include the general use mapping. 

Consumer exposure to cosmetic product is regulated under the Cosmetic Products Regulation 1223/2009 and is therefore not covered by REACH. Therefore Cosmetics Europe does not plan to develop SCEDs.
