Tip of the week – Report your uses and prepare your chemical safety assessment with the help of use maps

When preparing a registration, you need to include information on the uses of your substance, including those of your customers. Use maps can help you to describe the uses in a standardised way based on the information from certain downstream user sectors. The use maps will also give you information on the conditions of use, which can help you carry out the chemical safety assessment and to prepare a chemical safety report (CSR). A CSR you need to include in your dossier if you register a substance for above 10 tonnes per year.

More information on how to assess the hazards and risks are available on the REACH 2018 webpage.
