Fecc advises on effective supply-chain communication

Original Post Source

The European Association of Chemical Distributors, Fecc, has issued advice on effective supply-chain communication to reduce risk of chemical exposure under REACH.

Its suggestions to companies are:

  • the structure of the safety data sheet should follow the specifications of Annex II of REACH;
  • the structure of the exposure scenario should follow the specifications of the Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment (Part D – framework for exposure assessment); and
  • for the contents of safety data sheets and annexed exposure scenarios, standard phrase catalogues EuPhraC and ESCom are used, and SDSComXML/ESComXML are used as the electronic communication standard.

“Only if this happens, will it be possible to successfully communicate the relevant information in a comprehensive and useful way and positively contribute to the improvement of occupational safety and environmental protection,” Fecc said.
