Gain a thorough overview of the mixture classification approach for health hazards during this popular 1 hour and 45-minute webinar. 

The European Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (often called “CLP”), which is based on the United Nations Globally Harmonised System (GHS) came into force in January 2009.

Although the focus of this webinar will be on the EU CLP, the underlying principles of classifying and labelling are also applicable for GHS. Any differences between the EU CLP and GHS will be highlighted during the session. Note: Throughout the session examples of classification for the respective hazard classes will be used to illustrate the theory 

 

Session outcomes

    • Explain what is meant by classification and why it is important to do
    • Outline the main difference between CLP and GHS ( including the GHS hazard categories which have not currently been included in CLP)
    • Explain what is meant by harmonised classification and self-classification
    • Explain what is meant by bridging principles and how these are used
    • Explain when existing mixture test data can be used and the scenario where it should not be used (i.e. CMR) and the reason for this
    • Explain what is meant by the additivity principle and the hazard classes where it is applicable
    • List the hazard classes for human health and also what is meant by categories
    • Explain the differences between generic cut off limits, specific concentration limits and generic concentration limits and how these are used
    • Outline important considerations when choosing data for classification purposes (including the types of data which could be used)
    • Explain what is meant by the calculation approach for acute toxicity and how it is used
    • Be able to classify a mixture for each of the human health hazard classes! 

To gain maximum benefit from this webinar it would be useful to have some basic knowledge of toxicology.

About This Webinar

A unique feature of this training webinar is that you are encouraged to ‘raise your hand’ and put questions forward throughout the training – just as you would in a classroom environment.
