    European Coatings Journal (ECJ), issue 6/2016: Mapping out REACH

    REACH requires the industry to take responsibility for the safe use of the chemicals they place on the market, and companies therefore have to manage the risks of their products. An essential part of this responsibility is the effective safe use communication throughout the supply chain. Use maps can play a key role in this process.

    In this article, published by ECJDivina Gómez, Regulatory Affairs Manager at FEICA, explains how FEICA has developed use maps to provide registrants with information on uses and conditions of use of adhesive and sealant products in a harmonised and structured way.

    ECHA Newsletter 2016 Issue 1, February: Supply Chain communication - help yourself, use the tools

    ECHA, sector associations and EU Member States have worked for two years to develop tools and templates to improve communication on safe use in the supply chain. The work has got off to a promising start: new tools that help both registrants and downstream users have already been published and many more are in the pipeline.

    In this article ECHA has interviewed Divina Gómez, Regulatory Affairs Manager at FEICA, about the use maps being developed for the adhesive and sealant industry helping them to prepare more realistic safety assessments for their REACH registrations.
