  • Joint statement on Sector use maps.pdf

    Uploaded October 10, 2016

    A joint statement titled "Improving the safe use of chemicals in Europe through excellence in supply chain communication" was signed on 6 October 2016 by DUCC, ECHA and CEFIC.

    Accurate and clear information on the conditions of safe use of chemicals generated and communicated along the supply chain is essential in ensuring the successful implementation of the European Union’s REACH Regulation. To that end, DUCC, ECHA and CEFIC acknowledge the crucial role that sector use maps play in achieving excellence in supply chain communication.

    Please see the ECHA and CEFIC communications for more info.

    FEICA (as part of DUCC) will continue promoting the tools and raising awareness among downstream industry organisations to produce sector use maps to support registrants in generating meaningful exposure scenarios.

    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.
