REACH - Chemical Safety Assessments (1-day)

PDF Brochure — Course Offering: Spring 2012

Keywords: 
REACH, REACH training, chemical safety, chemical registration

Description:

Many companies are now facing the daunting prospect of registering their REACH tier II phase-in substances by the 2013 deadline.  A significant part of the registration process for these chemicals is the chemical safety assessment, the authoring of the chemical safety report, and associated exposure scenarios and extended safety data sheets.

This course is designed to be an overview of the European Union’s REACH Regulation’s requirements for a chemical safety assessment (CSA) and the impact that this assessment has on the EU extended Safety Data Sheets (eSDS).  As part of the course, there will set of short workshops for hands-on experience with a number of aspects of the CSA process.  An emphasis is placed on the scientific and regulatory requirements of a defensible chemical safety assessment and the associated exposure scenarios, chemical safety report, and extended safety data sheet.  The understanding and skills developed in the course will better allow participants to participate in a chemical safety assessment and manage the impacts that these have on hazard communication.

This is an advanced course. While there are no formal prerequisites for this course, it is recommended that participants have a working knowledge of the principles of hazard communication and risk assessment. Participants should have taken the SCHC courses Hazard Determination and Risk AssessmentEcotoxicology for Hazard Communication, and Industrial Hygiene for Hazard Communication or be comfortable with the principles presented in these courses.
