Summer School - Chemical Safety Assessment Under REACH, 2022, Utrecht University, Netherlands

Publish Date: Jun 18, 2022

Deadline: Aug 05, 2022

Event Dates: from Sep 05, 2022 12:00 to Sep 08, 2022 12:00

This four day training provides a full introduction in chemical safety assessment and offers you the opportunity to apply the theoretical framework directly in your own practice. Therefore the training involves a crash course on the first day in which a general overview of the REACH legislation, processes and the chemical safety assessment (CSA) is provided, with short interactive exercises. In the remaining part of the course the participants select a REACH relevant chemical to perform their own chemical safety assessment. On each day in a stepwise approach the theoretical background is provided, available tools are explained and briefly demonstrated after which you can bring it into practice with your selected chemical of interest under supervision of experts. After selecting a chemical the CSA starts with data gathering, selection and evaluation (day 2), hazard assessment (day 2 and 3), exposure assessment (day 3), and risk characterization (day 3). Within the course we briefly touch upon risk management measures (day 4) and the special topics PBT/PMT, endocrine disruption, nanomaterials and mixture toxicity. On the final day the participants are expected to pitch their most important lesson(s) learned to share their insights.

This course provides a combination of lectures and exercises with practical examples in which you have the opportunity to work with exposure assessment models.

The course is divided in two parts:

  • PART I (day 1)
    General introduction to chemical safety assessment (CSA) and REACH
  • PART II (day 2-4)
    Chemical safety assessment & hands on training

Target audience
