This course is organized in close collaboration with RIVM (the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment). It provides a thorough introduction in chemical safety assessment, as required in the EU legislation REACH (Registration, Authorisation, Evaluation and restriction of Chemicals).
This course’s main theme is the Chemical Safety Assessment as required under REACH (Registration, Authorization, Evaluation and restriction of Chemicals) .
The backbone of the course is the regulatory background of REACH and the risk assessment chain from emission and distribution of chemicals to exposure of man and ecosystems and finally, in the risk characterization, to effects.
Exposure Scenarios and risk management measures are specifically considered as well as the collection, evaluation and selection of exposure and effects data, including alternative data and integrated testing strategies.
The course is divided in two parts. In the first two days a general overview of the REACH legislation, regulatory processes and the chemical safety assessment (under REACH) is provided. The second part consists of two additional days with a more in depth and hands-on training on how to perform a chemical safety assessment by making use of available tools. One can choose to follow only the first part in which an overview is provided or the whole training of 4 days, including the in depth training. The exact content can be found in the day-to-day programme
