Joint FEICA & EFCC workshop on Use Maps - FOR MEMBERS ONLY

Efficient supply chain communication is key to chemical safety. The use map concept is developed to improve the quality of the information on use and conditions of use communicated up and down the supply chain and the efficiency of this communication process. 

The ‘Use Map Package’ consists of four templates:
the use map template, providing the general description of the uses 
three separate templates providing the inputs needed to carry out exposure assessments, for workers (SWEDs), environment (SpERCs) and consumers (SCEDs)

The content of the respective Use Maps Package for both member companies/associations and raw material suppliers will be explained, demonstrating the importance for registrants, formulators and end-users to excel in effective communication along the supply chain.

This joint EFCC (European Federation for Construction Chemicals) and FEICA workshop offers our members a convenient way to understand the benefits of the Use Map Packages developed under the REACH CSR/Exposure Scenarios Roadmap for the adhesive, sealant and construction chemical industries.
