    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.

  • FEICA Factsheet on Exposure Scenarios (ES) - 24 May 2013.pdf

    For members Uploaded November 25, 2015

    FEICA Factsheet on Exposure Scenarios (ES) for Adhesives and Sealants

    The fundamental aim of the REACH Regulation is to ensure that all uses are safe to both human health and environment. For that purpose, one ‘communication tool’ requested by REACH is the Exposure Scenarios (‘ES’), or set of information that describes how to use a substance safely. An ‘ES’ covers, therefore, either exposure assessments for the different uses (industrial, professional and consumer) or the environment.

    FEICA is currently carrying out three projects to develop the information on operational conditions and risk management measures for typical adhesive and sealants (A&S) applications. The projects address worker, consumer, and environmental safety by the so-called Generic Exposure Scenarios (GES), Specific Consumer Exposure Determinants (SCEDs), and Specific Environmental Release Categories (SPERCs) respectively.
