Getting meaningful exposure scenarios: how sector use maps help
30 March 2017
11:00 - 13:00 EEST, GMT +3

 

Description

This webinar is of interest for downstream users and downstream user sector organisations who want to optimise the communication of safe use information in the supply chain.

Participants will learn about the sector use map concept, its benefits, and its implementation.

Downstream users need to ensure they meet the conditions described in the exposure scenarios they receive. It is key that these exposure scenarios reflect the conditions of use in place, where those can be demonstrated to be safe. Exposure scenarios are generated by registrants. Therefore downstream users need to communicate to registrants how their substances are used. Sector use maps are an efficient way of communicating such information to registrants.

Sector use maps avoid the need for bilateral contacts between downstream users and registrants and ensure that downstream users receive realistic and harmonised exposure scenarios, making them easier to process.

How are substances screened and shortlisted?
14 February 2017
11:00 - 13:00 EET

 

Description

ECHA and Member State Competent Authorities are now in the fourth year of common screening. In late January every year, a number of substances are marked for manual screening by Member States. The selection is based on a set of algorithms to identify substances that may have hazardous properties and have the potential for exposure to humans or the environment.

This webinar explains the screening process, its timelines, and the criteria for short listing. It also explains how registrants can influence the manual screening process by updating their dossiers and how they can obtain more information on common screening.

The webinar also gives advice on how registrants should react to the informative letters sent by ECHA to all registrants of shortlisted substances.
