  • FEICA Webinar Use Maps Presentation Slides.pdf

    Uploaded April 15, 2021

    These are the presentation slides of the FEICA webinar which took place on 15 April 2021 on implementing sector use maps.

    In case you missed the webinar, we listed the key takeaways here:

    - Use maps play a key role in supply chain communication and the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) encourages their implementation

    - FEICA use maps cover the majority of typical uses for sealants and adhesives in industrial and professional as well as consumer settings

    - Using ECHA’s CHEmical Safety Assessment and Reporting tool (CHESAR) to implement FEICA use maps saves time for registrants

    - The improvements derived from the implementation of use maps will only be noticeable when applied to a majority of raw materials used in adhesives and sealants

  • FEICA Use Map Guidance.pdf

    FEICA Use Map Guidance

    The REACH Regulation EC 1907/2006 requires to include with the registration of substances, a chemical safety assessment on the whole life cycle of a chemical. The result of such an assessment is communicated downstream via exposure scenarios (ES) attached to the safety data sheet (SDS) of the substance. Downstream users such as formulators or users of adhesives and sealants are required to take this information on safe use into account in their own documents and adjust their own use conditions accordingly. To assist this process, several downstream user associations under the umbrella of DUCC (Downstream Users of Chemicals Coordination Group), have summarised their typical uses by including state-of-the-art use conditions of main applications in so-called use maps. 

    This guidance is not intended to describe the full use map concept but rather the specifics of applying the FEICA use map. More information on the safe use of mixtures is available via the FEICA public website.
