Helsinki -- If a downstream user's use of a substance is not covered by the supplier's exposure scenarios, they have an option to prepare a downstream user chemical safety report. This practical guide gives advice and examples on how to prepare one, including how to:
- gather information on the substance;
- perform a chemical safety assessment;
- document the downstream user chemical safety report;
- communicate the outcome of the report to customers; and
- report to ECHA.
The practical guide complements the Guidance on Downstream Users (section 5). It was developed as part of the Chemical Safety Report/Exposure Scenario Roadmap in collaboration with stakeholders. The information in the guide builds on a survey of downstream users that was conducted to identify their needs related to chemical safety reports.
