Due to the covid-19 outbreak, this course has been postponed to 2021.

This four-day training provides a full introduction in chemical safety assessment as required in the EU legislation REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of CHemicals). It offers you the unique opportunity to apply this theoretical framework directly by working with chemicals from your own practice. This course is organized in close collaboration with RIVM (Dutch Institute for Public Health and the Environment).

The four days training provides a full introduction in chemical safety assessment and offers you the opportunity to apply the theoretical framework directly in your own practice.

The course starts on the first days with a crash course in which a general overview of the REACH legislation, processes and the chemcial 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 these into practice on 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). During 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 participants are expected to pitch their most important lessons learned to share their insights.
