New FEICA leaflet: How to improve your supply chain communication by implementing sector use maps
In October 2016, FEICA use maps were made available for substance registrants. FEICA use maps compile, in a harmonised and structured way, the majority of the industrial and professional applications of the adhesive and sealant sector. The use maps packages comprise the use map template, which provides the general description of the uses and three separate templates providing the inputs needed to carry out exposure assessments, for workers (SWEDs), environment (SPERCs) and consumers (SCEDs).
Now, a campaign to increase the implementation of FEICA use maps in registrants dossiers has been started by the FEICA Mixture Assessment Task Force (TF). Together with the FEICA webinar that will take place on 15 April 2021, and the development of a guidance document to support registrants with the implementation of the packages, the TF has now made available this informative leaflet. We encourage our members to share this leaflet with your raw materials suppliers (i.e. through your procurement departments).Your support to increase the visibility of all the work done by the TF is of paramount importance and would be greatly appreciated.
It is also available from the FEICA information centre and our dedicated FEICA webpage on the safe of of mixtures.
