The presentation outlines EuPIA policies, key concept documents and processes.
The first step covers the general criteria for the selection of raw materials and the EuPIA "Raw Material Questionnaire."
This is followed by a risk assessment process, which includes three principles:
- Fully evaluated substances (e.g. Union list)
- Self-derived TDI or SML based on public toxicity data
- Self-derived TDI or SML based on TTC concept.
Exposure assessment uses the EU cube model as default; and other models, such as EFSA food consumption data or FACET can be used if appropriate.
Adaquate information's about substances present in the printing inks and the results of the evaluation are reported in a "Statement of Composition" document to our customers.
