1. Registration

  2. Overview on ERA

    • Input parameter for ERA
    • Emission pathways into environment
    • Definitions (emission, exposure and effect assessment, risk characterisation)
  3. Guidance documents

    • ECHA guidance documents (Vol. IV, Part A & Parts B+C)
      • Information requirements (Part A)
      • Introduction in Parts B+C (i.e. input parameter and PEC-calculations)
    • TAB August 2018 (agreed changes or amendments for the ERA)
    • ESDs for the different Product Types (PT)
  4. Tools and models

    • Introduction of EUSES2.1.2
    • EXCEL-sheets as an alternative
    • Training Session: EUSES2.1.2
    • Introduction of EUSES2.1.2 and creation of training file
  5. Refreshment break

  6. Follow-up of the training session for EUSES2.1.2

  7. Emission estimation

    • Definition of intended uses
    • Life cycle stages to be assessed: formulation, application, service-life
    • Selection of the relevant emission scenarios
    • Tonnage based/consumption based approaches

    Training session: emission estimation

    • Example calculation with EXCEL-sheets or EUSES2.1.2 for 2-3 scenarios in different PTs (e.g. disinfectants: PT1-4, preservatives: PT6-10 and insecticide: PT18 or repellent: PT19)
  8. Lunch

  9. Follow up of the training session for emission estimation

  10. Exposure estimation (calculation of PEC-values)

    • Emission via sewage treatment plan (STP)
      • Calculation of PEC-values for STP, surface water, sediment, soil
    • Release to soil:
      • After application of slurry/manure on grassland or arable land (e.g. PT3/PT18)
      • After leaching from treated surface (e.g. PT7-PT10)
    • Calculation of PEC for groundwater

    Training session: exposure estimation

    Example calculations with EUSES2.1.2 and EXCEL-sheets

  11. Refreshment break

  12. Follow up of the training session for exposure estimation

    • Effect assessment and Risk characterisation
      • Effect assessment: PNEC derivation with EUSES and equilibrium partitioning method for sediment and soil
      • Environmental risk characterisation
