Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment
Chapter 14: occupational exposure assessment, version 3.0 - August 2016
This document describes the information requirements under the REACH Regulation with regard to substance properties, exposure, use and risk management measures, and the chemical safety assessment. It is part of a series of guidance documents that are aimed to help all stakeholders with their preparation for fulfilling their obligations under the REACH Regulation. These documents cover detailed guidance for a range of essential REACH processes as well as for some specific scientific and/or technical methods that industry or authorities need to make use of under the REACH Regulation. The... original versions of the guidance documents were drafted and discussed within the REACH Implementation Projects (RIPs) led by the European Commission services, involving stakeholders from Member States, industry and non-governmental organisations. After acceptance by the Member States competent authorities the guidance documents had been handed over to ECHA for publication and further maintenance. Any updates of the guidance are drafted by ECHA and are then subject to a consultation procedure, involving stakeholders from Member States, industry and non-governmental organisations. For details of the consultation procedure, please see: http://echa.europa.eu/documents/10162/13559/mb_63_2013_consultation_procedure_for_guidance_revision_2_en.pdf The guidance documents can be obtained via the website of the European Chemicals Agency at: http://echa.europa.eu/web/guest/guidance-documents/guidance-on-reach This document relates to the REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 20061 and its amendments until 27 December 2015.
