New Use Maps and REACH guidance (SPERCs, SWEDs, SUMIs)
This important update has been the
result of extensive work and demonstrates A.I.S.E.’s commitment to supply chain
After four years of work, A.I.S.E. published four A.I.S.E. SPERC documents –
factsheets, background and assessments by an external consultant.
The SPERCS (Specific environmental release category) are
elements of the use maps and part of CSA for environmental emission. These
important documents can demonstrate safety of use for approx. 80 % of A.I.S.E.
products while avoiding individual testing. These documents will be of high
added value for both the Consumer and PC&H sector.
The Sector-specific Worker
Exposure Descriptions (SWEDs) provide information on the conditions of use of
products at industrial sites and by professional workers.
A.I.S.E. have added two new SWEDs
to the use maps: the AISE_SWED_PW_8b_1 and AISE_SWED_PW_8b_2 – for Transfer of
products via a dedicated system (bottle/bucket/machine).
- A new and
improved REACH Guidance:
Finally, as an important step to
the revamp, the A.I.S.E. REACH guidance has been reviewed with a new chapter
and the addition of new SUMIs linked to the SWEDs that have been added.
