Reach - Regulating chemicals in Europe

  1. 1. REACH Regulating Chemicals in Europe
  2. 2. R E A C H
  3. 3. Registration E A C H
  4. 4. Registration Evaluation A C H
  5. 5. Registration Evaluation Authorisation & restriction C H
  6. 6. Registration Evaluation Authorisation & restriction of CHemicals
  7. 7. S I E F
  8. 8. Substance Information Exchange Forum
  9. 9. E C H A
  10. 10. European CHemicals Agency
  11. 11. Helsinki
  12. 12. What does REACH involve?
  13. 13. Registration E A C H
  14. 14. Registrants have to provide a  Technical dossier  Chemical safety report
  15. 15. Registrants have to provide a  Technical dossier  Chemical safety report If more than 10 tonnes produced or imported

  17. 17. R Evaluation A C H
  18. 18. R E Authorisation & restriction C H
  19. 19. Substances of Very High Concern  Carcinogens, mutagens, toxic for reproduction
  20. 20. Substances of Very High Concern  Carcinogens, mutagens, toxic for reproduction  Persistent, bio-accumulative and toxic
  21. 21. Substances of Very High Concern  Carcinogens, mutagens, toxic for reproduction  Persistent, bio-accumulative and toxic  Very persistent and very bio-accumulative
  22. 22. Substances of Very High Concern  Carcinogens, mutagens, toxic for reproduction  Persistent, bio-accumulative and toxic  Very persistent and very bio-accumulative  Substances giving rise to an equivalent level of concern
  23. 23. REACH also repeals and replaces CHIP requirements on safety data sheets
  24. 24. Extended safety data sheets must contain information about risk management measures for user ‘exposure scenarios’
  25. 25. Extended safety data sheets are required for : Substances Mixtures
  26. 26. Extended safety data sheets are NOT required for
  27. 27. Substances / mixtures not classified as hazardous
  28. 28. Cosmetics
  29. 29. Medical products
  30. 30. Consumer products
  31. 31. Extended safety data sheets are NOT required for: Low hazard substances and mixtures Cosmetics Medical products Consumer products
  32. 32. In parallel with REACH, new requirements are being introduced on the labelling of hazardous substances
  33. 33. European Regulation on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of chemical substances and mixtures

  41. 41. The key to REACH is the chemical safety report
  42. 42. Hazard assessment Establish all “exposure scenarios” Assess risks for exposure scenarios Establish risk management measures
  43. 43. Hazard assessment Establish all “exposure scenarios” Assess risks for exposure scenarios Establish risk management measures
  44. 44. Hazard assessment Establish all “exposure scenarios” Assess risks for exposure scenarios Establish risk management measures Determine o physio-chemical o toxicological o environmental properties
  45. 45. Hazard assessment Establish all “exposure scenarios” Assess risks for exposure scenarios Establish risk management measures Establish “Derived no effect levels” (DNELs)
  46. 46. Hazard assessment Establish all “exposure scenarios” Assess risks for exposure scenarios Establish risk management measures
  47. 47. Hazard assessment Establish all “exposure scenarios” Assess risks for exposure scenarios Establish risk management measures Co-ordinate with “downstream users”
  48. 48. Hazard assessment Establish all “exposure scenarios” Assess risks for exposure scenarios Establish risk management measures
  49. 49. Hazard assessment Establish all “exposure scenarios” Assess risks for exposure scenarios Establish risk management measures Air sampling data or Modelling
  50. 50. Hazard assessment Establish all “exposure scenarios” Assess risks for exposure scenarios Establish risk management measures Will the DNELs be exceeded?
  51. 51. Hazard assessment Establish all “exposure scenarios” Assess risks for exposure scenarios Establish risk management measures
  52. 52. What about “downstream users”?
  53. 53. “The downstream user should follow his supplier’s advice on measures to control risks as provided in the safety data sheets”
  54. 54. Other responsibilities of “downstream users” are to: Co-ordinate and co-operate with suppliers Pass information down the supply chain
  55. 55. What if there’s a conflict between COSHH and REACH?
  56. 56. The most rigorous requirement must take precedence
  57. 57. (That will probably be the REACH requirements!)
  58. 58. Registration Evaluation Authorisation & restriction of CHemicals
