New and updated use maps elements published in the Use Maps Library for various sectors

Various sectors have published new or updated use maps elements in the Use Maps Library since October 2020:

  • The European Council of the Paint, Printing Ink and Artists' Colours Industry (CEPE), published its use map package (use maps, SPERCs, SWEDs and SCEDs, including the Chesar file) for the first time;
  • Fertilizers Europe published a Chesar version of their use map and their SWEDs for the first time. The package also includes a “SWEDs and SUMIs guidance”;
  • The International Fragrance Association (IFRA), published its SPERCs for the first time; and
  • The European Solvents Industry group (ESIG), updated some of its use map Chesar files (for the low volatility low derived no-effect level (DNEL) and for the moderate volatility low DNEL).

Additionally, with the release of Chesar 3.6, several sectors (A.I.S.E., ECPA and I&P Europe) have updated their existing SWEDs and their Chesar file. The updated files are in line with the agreed harmonised set of conditions of use for workers and compatible with Chesar 3.6.

Other sectors (EFCC and FEICA) are finalising the update of their Chesar file.
