Seventh meeting of the ECHA-Stakeholder Exchange Network on Exposure Scenarios (ENES 7)

18-19 November 2014 | Diamant Conference & Business Centre (Brussels, Belgium)

The Event

ENES7 will focus on reporting on the latest developments to improve supply chain communication and the role of the REACH exposure scenarios.  The next phase (2015) in the implementation of the CSR/ES Roadmap and its priorities are also on the agenda.

The principal themes at ENES7 are improving communication on uses and conditions of use up the supply chain, promoting structured communication of exposure scenarios down the supply chain, connecting exposure assessment under REACH to the risk management practice downstream and looking forward to the next phase of developments under the CSR/ES Roadmap.

One topical session focuses on updates of key Chapters on Guidance for chemical safety assessment.
