Sixth meeting of the ECHA-Stakeholder Exchange Network on Exposure Scenarios (ENES 6)
20-21 May 2015 | ECHA Conference Centre (Helsinki, Finland)
ENES8 reported on the latest developments to provide the tools to improve supply chain communication on uses between downstream users and registrants. The next phase (2015-2016) in the implementation of the CSR/ES Roadmap and its priorities were also on the agenda.
The principal themes at ENES8 were the following:
- How the different elements of the CSR/ES Roadmap are meant to work together
- Which elements work already? Where is further development needed?
- Methods to determine the impact on achieving the ultimate objectives.
- The next implementation plan.
- How authorities, manufacturers and downstream users work with the information generated
- How authorities make use of the information from registration (for example, the screening of information for selection of substances and dossiers for further regulatory processes).
- How enforcement authorities look at exposure scenarios at single company level (if experience is already available).
- How other parties work with the information generated/communicated.
- Particular items under development - state of play
- Result of commenting on the lead component identification (LCiD) method for safe use information, further testing plan.
- Downstream user sector safe use mixture information (SUMIs).
- Improvement of use maps:
- Use description part (template and implementation aspects).
- Sector-specific worker exposure descriptions (SWEDs) - template, examples, the link between the SWED and the use description part of use maps.
- SpERCs (template, examples, the link between the SpERC and the use description part of use maps).
- ESCom: how companies can start using it in practice.
- Scaling and downstream user chemical safety reports (DU CSRs).
