How to identify which risk management measures to communicate for mixtures

Formulators need to communicate safe use information for mixtures under REACH. One approach is to use sector specific information developed by downstream industry organisations. Another approach, particularly when the first option is not available, is to identify the lead components and derive safe use information for mixtures using the exposure scenarios. A Cefic/VCI task force has published a practical guide on lead component identification (LCID) methodology they have developed for this purpose. This is a cross-stakeholder project under the CSR/ES Roadmap. To support the publication, a free workshop will take place on 4 May 2016 in Brussels.
