Course description

This 3 day hazard communication course includes in-depth training on Safety Data Sheet (SDS), Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) and Exposure Scenarios (extended SDS) obligations.

Day 1: Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP)
The first day is designed to introduce you to the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 which sets-out the new requirements for the classification, labelling and packaging of chemical substances and mixtures. The Regulation came into force on 20 January 2009 and some requirements impact on businesses immediately whilst others come into effect in the future. The CLP Regulation implements the Globally Harmonised System for the classification and labelling of chemicals (GHS) in the EU.

Day 2: Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
The second day is aimed primarily at those who need to supply SDS. REACH & CLP Regulations have impacted on the content and layout of SDS and also increased the awareness of industry on the need for compliance with the new standard. The course will provide attendees with a full understanding of the requirements of a REACH compliant SDS and identify the skills and resources needed to produce them.

Day 3: Exposure scenarios (extended SDS)
The third day aims to cover the scientific principles of exposure assessment and help you understand how to implement extended SDS in your organisation. The course is designed for those involved in use and supply of chemicals, especially those needing to prepare eSDS or who received eSDS and need to apply the recommendations into real life.
