The Unit supports the prioritisation of groups of chemicals and provides expert advice to the related authority REACH regulatory processes, including evaluation, authorisation and restriction. In terms of industry supply chain communication, the Unit:

  • supports chemical safety assessment, via ECHA’s Chesar and exposure estimation models;

  • Lead and/or contribute to initiatives designed to improve/modernise the way REACH extended safety data sheets are communicated electronically along the supply chain;
  • Prepare with (industry and Member State) stakeholders interactive web-based and other material to improve ECHA’s communication and outreach to the downstream users and enhance their understanding on what REACH information brings to on-site risk assessments under other EU legislations.

Chemical Safety Assessment and Exposure Scenarios

  • Contribute to the further development of methods for risk-based safety assessment of chemicals, including the modelling of exposure, and the corresponding communication processes on patterns of use and conditions of use up and down the supply chains (see also Exchange Network on Exposure Scenarios and the Commission REACH Review) and to the Member State authorities;
  • Lead and/or contribute to product development teams for improving the tools to communicate use and conditions of use information effectively in supply chains;
  • Develop guidance, support and tools for chemical safety assessment, exposure scenarios and supply chain communication, tailored to meet the needs of different actors in the supply chains of chemical products;
  • Identify, engage and cooperate with external projects on strategies to improve the interaction between REACH and other legislations (e.g. the Chemicals Agent Directive, the Carcinogens and Mutagens Directive, product safety-related EU legislation, the Industrial Emission Directive, and waste legislation).
