Product & Application Toolbox
ECSA has developed an online toolbox freely accessible via the ECSA website to provide users of chlorinated solvents with information about the safe & sustainable use of the products. It is built as a self-explanatory guide based on a simple decision tree of product applications to lead the user readily to the proper information on safe use, environmental protection as well as legislative requirements.
The recommendations do take into account REACH (1907/2006/EC on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) as well as other European legislation or voluntary industry commitments. The content of the Toolbox is based on the REACH Chemical Safety Assessment (CSA) of the substances.
However, the Toolbox also includes recommendations based on experience of ECSA members that go beyond the given legal framework of the CSA under REACH.
