  • Guidance at a glance - ES series (3) - The relevance of SCEDs to FEICA Members.pdf

    For members Uploaded January 04, 2016

    The third publication in the FEICA 'Guidance at a Glance' series on Exposure Scenarios (ES) explains the relevance of SCEDs to FEICA members and how they facilitate your REACH-requirements on ‘safe use’ communication.

    Specific Consumer Exposure Determinants (SCEDs) have been called the consumer equivalent of the Specific Environmental Release Categories (SpERCs). They document the "exposure determinants” – i.e. the factors which determine the exposure to a substance – and offer more realistic data for use as "information input” in a consumer exposure assessment.

  • DUCC publishes new document on Safe Use of Mixtures (SUMI).pdf

    Uploaded January 04, 2016

    DUCC published an explanatory document on "Sector Specific approaches towards developing and communicating information for the safe use of mixtures” which includes a template on the SUMI – the Safe Use of Mixtures Information, thus providing its members and formulators with an important tool for compliance with the REACH obligations in communicating safe use conditions of mixtures, as per article 31 (7) of REACH. FEICA is also working on the approach outlined in the document and, being a partner of DUCC, gave input to the guidance.

    Overview of changes in FEICA SpERCs

    In order to reflect improvement, the factsheets have been revised by the sector organisations, generally by reformatting and adding more detailed background information to enable its transparent application. Furthermore the SpERCs have been simplified. While the previous SpERCs still remain valid, the new revised SpERCs have assigned new version numbers (v2) to discriminate between the different assumptions made in both, the previous and the revised version.

  • Guidance at a glance - ES series (2) - Relevance of SPERCs to FEICA members.pdf

    For members Uploaded December 01, 2015

    This second publication in the FEICA 'Guidance at a Glance' series on Exposure Scenarios (ES) addresses the Specific Environmental Release Categories (SPERCs) with an overview of their relevance for FEICA members.

    FEICA, among other sector associations, developed SPERCs on a voluntary basis using a recently standardised best practice format .The FEICA SPERCs describe the environmental emissions from typical uses of adhesive and sealants in industrial, professional and do-it-yourself applications, as well as from its product formulation.  Together with the recent development of the sector-Specific Worker Exposure Descriptions (SWEDs) and sector-Specific Consumer Exposure Determinants (SCEDs), the SPERCs build the basis for registrants to provide safe use scenarios of their chemicals. For FEICA members they can provide evidence and facilitation in safe use communication.

  • Guidance at a glance - ES series (1) - ECHA's CSR/ES roadmap - FEICA's contribution.pdf

    For members Uploaded December 01, 2015

    This first document in the 'Guidance at a Glance - Exposure Scenarios (ES) Series' is a general document to explain FEICA’s contribution to ECHA’s Chemical Safety Report/Exposure Scenario (CSR/ES) roadmap, which sets out an action plan to improve the mechanisms needed to get ready for the next REACH registration deadline in 2018.

    FEICA, as an active participant in the programme is committed to deliver its plan actions to achieve the goals of the REACH Regulation for the safe use of chemicals.

    To that aim, FEICA has been an active contributor to the development of aspects of the Roadmap, either alone or through its participation in the Downstream Users of Chemicals Coordination group (DUCC). To ensure the link with the registrants, FEICA also collaborates with CEFIC to bring the views of the downstream users.
