Chemical Hazard Assessment: Informing Decisions for Safer Chemicals, Materials, and Products

Webinar Description

Chemical hazard assessment (CHA) assesses chemical substances across a suite of hazard endpoints and uses the resulting data to compare chemicals for various purposes. It is increasingly utilized by retailers, brands, and materials suppliers to make informed decisions about chemical use. CHA can be exercised through initiatives such as regulatory standards, ingredient disclosure schemes, voluntary ecolabels, and internal product development. This session introduces listeners to different types of CHA, sources of data, and strategies for dealing with data gaps. A number of example applications are presented to illustrate the range of possible uses.
