The Extended Safety Data Sheet (eSDS) - Basics for Creation of Exposure Scenarios and Communication in the Supply Chain



The REACH Regulation stipulates that usages of hazardous substances must be identified via a safety assessment, recorded in terms of exposure scenarios and communicated along the supply chain.
The extended safety data sheets (eSDS) increasingly accompany the daily work. We will clearly explain to you what is actually hidden behind them, both legally and practically.

Your benefit

The participants are informed about the legal background and significance of exposure scenarios. They will also receive a detailed overview of the contents and the creation of exposure scenarios, as well as their application and dissemination in the supply chain. This training is aimed at creators and recipients of extended safety data sheets (eSDS).


Part 1: Relevance and content of exposure scenarios

  • Legal background of the exposure scenarios
  • Definition, structure and contents of exposure scenarios
  • Use descriptors


Part 2: The route to create exposure scenario

  • Modelling Tools
  • Relevant parameters, data & strategy
  • Ways to safe use
  • The transfer from CSR to eSDB

Part 3: Verification of the eSDS by the downstream user

  • Obligations of the downstream user
  • Procedure for the eSDB check
  • What information needs to be verified?
  • What to do in case of deviations (e.g. scaling, downstream user-CSR)?


Part 4: Safe use of substances in mixtures (Safe use information for mixtures)

  • Communication in the supply chain
  • Overview: Methods for generating information on the safe use of mixtures
  • Lead component identification methodology (LCID)
  • Safe use of mixture information (SUMI)
Target audience: 
Employees from the areas of product safety, occupational safety and environmental protection, SDS authors
