1 ES-MODIFIER An IT-tool for formulators – particularily SMEs ES-workshop in Varese, Italy May 19-20, 2008 Helle Simon Elbro, hse consult

2 List of contents 1.Brief demonstration of IT-tool 2.Practical use of Descriptors of Use 3.Evaluation of ES-Modifier by others

3 Focus on all formulating industry sectors - and their customers Earlier Prototypes Present version Paints Sealants Adhesives Cleaning agents Lubricants ++ 1)Present focus: Raise awareness/ involvement 2) Longer term: ES Scaling

4 Key OUTPUT: Calculation of RCR ES MODIFIER Not Safe Exposure DNEL PNEC Risk Characterisation Ratio HUMAN ENVIRONMENT < 1 1

5 Exposure Assessment Default exposure models: – Ecetoc TRA – EUSES, with ERCs (or industry specific release fractions) Other models being included: – StoffenManager; RiskOfDerm; COSHH-BAUA

6 Headlines for a USE End use (U) Service Life (S) Formulation (F)Manufacturing (M) 1. Lifecycle stage 2. User group Industry Professional Consumer Industry 3. Descriptors of use (SU, PC, PROC, AC) ProfessionalConsumer

7 Focus for ES-modifier tool NOT – Company with risk assessment experts or who will make DU-CSR – Company participating in pan-european activity regarding development of ES-concept under REACH HOT – Formulating DU company/ Small trading company importing from outside of EU – Basic knowledge how to make SDS for preparations (max. 1-2 persons in HS&E department) – No knowledge about self-classfication – ES knowledge through national helpdesks/trade organisations

8 How to use ES-modifier 1.Choose lifecycle stage (and user group) 2.Insert substance data (directly/plug-in) (Today ES-Modifier is substance based; future plans for preparations) 3.Describe overall use according to DoU 4.Choose models (Default models are Ecetoc TRA and EUSES) 5.Describe specific details of use 6.Make calculations and observe RCR results

9 Lifecycle stage + user group Substance Menu options Descriptors of use (SU; PC; PROC; AC) RCR Risk Charac. Ratio Detailed input

35 List of contents 1.Brief demonstration of IT-tool 2.Practical use of Descriptors of Use 3.Evaluation of ES-Modifier

36 Practical use of Descriptors of use (DoU) Conclusion from case studies in RIP 3.2: – DoU is difficult to use/not reproducible DoU is the main tool recommended in guidance for – the identification of use – and the headline in the ES More help is needed to find your way around in DoU – Reference to Life Cycle Stage – Pre-selection of main and sub-categories – Industry specific translation of PROC-codes – Pre-combination of DoU and ERCs

37 LCS CodeSector of Use SU1Agriculture, forestry, fishery SU2Mining, (including offshore industries) USU3Industrial Manufacturing (all) USU4Manufacture of food products MSU8Manufacture of bulk, large scale chemicals (including petroleum products) MSU9Manufacture of fine chemicals FSU10Chemical formulation and packaging USU11Manufacture of rubber products USU12Manufacture of plastics products, including compounding and conversion USU18Manufacture of furniture … USSU21Private households (= general public) USSU22Public domain (administration, education, entertainment, services, craftsmen) Translation of Sectors of use Professional use Consumer use Main category for formulation Main category for industrial use Life cycle stages Sub category for industrial use

38 Combination of DoU*) and ERCs Present activity *) DoU = Descriptors of Use SU1 SU2.. SU23 PC1 PC2.. PC41 PROC1 PROC2.. PROC19 AC1 AC2.. AC40 xxx An ERCs to be attached to every combination! SU22+PC9+PROC9+AC18.1 ERC 8c

40 List of contents 1.Brief demonstration of IT-tool 2.Practical use of Descriptors of Use 3.Evaluation of ES-Modifier

41 Evaluation of ES-Modifier Functionality DU Companies DU sector groups (translation of e.g. PROC) Communication in supply chain (incl. exchange of substance data) M/I Companies & sector groups (CEFIC) Discussion of responsibility Authorities Validation of calcualtions Experts
