REACH requires manufacturers to assess how a substance can be safely used. REACH also requires downstream actors in the use chain to pass on this information to ensure the safe use of the substance. Industry, supported by ECHA, have developed the concept of a SUMI – Safe Use of Mixture Information, to implement this. Behind each SUMI is a SWED – Sector-specific Worker Exposure Description. This describes the end-use of the mixture containing the substance and provides a proven link between the safe exposure level with that expected in practice. Wayne will present details of the CEPE/EuPIA SWED/SUMI initiative and introduce the concept of SpERCs for the environment.
