Use description and mapping for cleaning and maintenance
To support suppliers (substance
their chemical safety assessments and reports, A.I.S.E. has developed
comprehensive, use description tables based on the use descriptor
system (see ECHA guidance on chemical safety assessment/report
indicates available on the ECHA website:
These tables detail all process
categories and environmental release categories which are relevant for
each use for the cleaning and maintenance products sector. Since ECETOC
Targeted Risk Assessment TRA is seen as the preferred first-tier
exposure assessment tool, uses have been described and exposure
parameters listed in a way that allows running the TRA.
The Downstream Users of Chemicals
Co-ordination (DUCC) Group agreed on a common DUCC format (click here to download the
blank) to describe and report uses, therefore the tables 2, 3
and 4 follow the DUCC use reporting format.
The lists of uses are expected to cover
majority (>80 %) of the uses of A.I.S.E. members, both large and
small companies. For each use, use descriptors and Environmental
Release Categories (ERCs) are provided. The “product sub-category”
corresponds to entries in the ECETOC TRA, where it is possible to
differentiate products types within a given Product Category. Short
exposure scenario titles are proposed to registrants. The “A.I.S.E. use
code” is mostly for reference. Individual A.I.S.E. members active in
this market sector may wish to report additional uses on a one-to-one
basis to their suppliers.
Manufacturers/Importers (M/I) are encouraged to consider
list as representative for the sector when they prepare for use
communication to their customers and for exposure scenario development.
Note: the list provided
herewith may not be
exhaustive and may be subject to changes. Suppliers are advised to
check this list on a regular basis.
