Read-Across Assessment Framework (RAAF)( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document describes the first version of the Read Across Assessment Framework (RAAF) developed by ECHA as an internal tool for the examination of predictions, based on read-across, of the human health properties of chemical substances in the context of the REACH Regulation. The aim of this document is to present the concept and principles underpinning the RAAF. The RAAF provides a framework and principles for the scientific examination of a read-across case, as well as setting out the critical scientific elements of a read-across case to be assessed. However, the RAAF does not cover all scientific issues or cases, and expert judgement must be used when applying this framework. It is emphasised here that the RAAF focuses on the scientific aspects of the examination of read-across approaches and is intended to be used by experts
Work programme 2014( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the EU’s chemicals legislation is to ensure a high level of protection of human health and the environment, and to facilitate the free circulation of chemicals within the internal market. In addition, the aim is to enhance competitiveness and innovation, and to promote alternative methods to animal testing for assessing the hazards of chemicals. The EU regulatory system is based upon the principle that manufacturers, importers and downstream users should ensure that they manufacture, place on the market or use substances that do not adversely affect human health or the environment. The provisions are underpinned by the precautionary principle

Practical guide on biocidal products regulation( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic principle in the Biocidal Products Regulation ((EU) No 528/2012 (BPR)) is that a biocidal product (BP) must be authorised before it can be made available on the market or used in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA). This takes place in two consecutive steps. As the first step, the active substance is evaluated and, provided the criteria are fulfilled, is then approved in a specified product-type (PT). The second step is the authorisation of each BP consisting of, containing or generating the approved active substance(s). This document concerns the first step, approval of active substances

4 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document is the Guidance on the Application of the CLP Criteria. It is a comprehensive technical and scientific document on the application of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP), which will replace the Dangerous Substances Directive 67/548/EEC (DSD) and the Dangerous Preparations Directive 1999/45/EC (DPD) in a staggered way. CLP is based on the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) and is implementing the provisions of the GHS within the EU. The objective of this document is to provide detailed guidance on the application of the CLP criteria for physical, health and environmental hazards. The guidance is developed to assist primarily manufacturers or importers applying classification and labelling criteria and it also includes practical examples. It is also assumed to be the guidance on classification and labelling for Competent Authorities in the Member States (MS CA), for the Commission services and the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA)

3 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guidance document has been written to help you to find your way around the requirements of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP Regulation or simply CLP) which entered into force on 20 January 2009, see http://eurlex. europa.eu/JOHtml.do?uri=OJ:L:2008:353:SOM:EN:HTML. You will be made familiar with the basic features and procedures of CLP but are advised to consult the legislative text for additional details and to confirm understanding. In relation to the classification criteria as such you are recommended to consult the guidance document on the application of the CLP rules for classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (Module 2). The document also provides substance-specific guidance where this is relevant for a particular classification, e.g. for the aquatic classification of metals. Many provisions of CLP are closely linked to provisions under Regulation 1907/2006 on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and other Community legislation. The most relevant links to REACH, to Directive 98/8/EC on biocidal products and to Directive 91/414/EEC on plant protection products are briefly explained in separate sections of this guidance document. In addition, REACH links are noted briefly in the individual sections of this document, where appropriate
