Getting meaningful exposure scenarios: how sector use maps help
30 Mar 17
14:00 - 16:00 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.

Use maps - how downstream users and registrants can benefit
15 Jun 16
14:00 - 15:30

 

Description

Use maps provide a harmonised way of describing how downstream users use chemicals. Registrants can use this information as input to their chemical safety assessment. They can then provide relevant and realistic conditions for safe use to downstream users in the exposure scenarios that are annexed to the Safety Data Sheet.

This webinar is of interest for downstream user sector organisations and others who are interested in generating sector use maps. It is also relevant for registrants, who want to incorporate the information in dossiers and for downstream users who want to check that their use is covered. Participants will be guided through the use map formats and learn how the concept works in practice.

How are substances screened and shortlisted?

14:00 - 16:00 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.

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.

How are substances screened and shortlisted?
17 Feb 16
16:00 - 18:00 Helsinki time

 

Description

ECHA and Member State Competent Authorities are now in the third year of common screening. In late January every year approximately 200-300 substances are earmarked for manual screening by Member State experts based on an extensive set of algorithms to identify substances that may pose risk to human health or the environment. The short listed substances are grouped in terms of both the suspected hazardous properties and also the REACH/CLP regulatory process that may be the optimal next step. ECHA has recently written to nearly 1 500 companies informing them that their registration dossiers may soon be manually examined by Member State experts to confirm the need for further regulatory action. This webinar will explain the screening process, its timelines, and the criteria for short listing. The webinar will also explain how registrants can influence the manual screening process by updating their dossiers and how they could obtain more information on common screening.

The questions and answers from the webinar are available here.

Why opt for substitution
22 Sep 15
14:00 - 15:30

 

Description

Replacing hazardous chemicals with safer alternatives can bring substantial benefits to the company, the environment and the health of workers and consumers – all good reasons to substitute them. An additional driver comes from the chemicals legislation. Companies using substances that have been identified as SVHCs under REACH, have to decide whether to apply for a permission to continue using these toxic substances for a limited period of time or to substitute them with safer alternatives.

ECHA and a group of accredited stakeholder organisations have organised a series of webinars aiming to inspire companies to substitute hazardous chemicals and explain how it can be done. All webinars include examples of real life substitution projects. This was the first webinar in the series.

Description

The webinar provides an introduction to the OECD QSAR Toolbox and its functionalities. Two examples cover endpoints which will be relevant for the third REACH registration deadline in 2018 (e.g. skin sensitisation, aquatic toxicity). The Toolbox is the most comprehensive, widely recognised and freely available platform for data gap filling in regulatory hazard assessment, while avoiding tests. It is used for grouping chemicals into categories, identifying and filling (eco-)toxicological data gaps for the hazard assessment of chemicals. The Toolbox is also very useful for screening and prioritising inventories.
