How to Prepare a Downstream User Chemical Safety Report

working with chemicalsA new guide on how to prepare a downstream user chemical safety report has been published by the European Chemicals Agency.

If a downstream user’s use of a substance is not covered by the supplier’s exposure scenarios, the user has an option to prepare a downstream user chemical safety report. This guide gives advice and examples on how to prepare one, including how to:

  • gather information on the substance;
  • perform a chemical safety assessment;
  • document the downstream user chemical safety report;
  • communicate the outcome of the report to customers; and
  • report to ECHA.

The practical guide complements the Guidance on Downstream Users (section 5). It was developed as part of the Chemical Safety Report/Exposure Scenario Roadmap.

The information in the guide builds on a survey of downstream users that was conducted to identify their needs related to chemical safety reports.

Earlier this month Unilever and the EPA announced they are developing new scientific approaches to assess the safety of chemicals in consumer products without using animal data. The organizations say the new tools developed as part of the collaboration will quantify human health risks for thousands of chemicals.
