Environmental Fate and Behaviour higher tier drainflow spreadsheet

Please be advised the MACRO (v4.3b) higher tier drainflow spreadsheet is now available to download from the HSE website: http://www.hse.gov.uk/pesticides/topics/pesticide-approvals/pesticides-registration/data-requirements-handbook/fate/macro.htm

There is also the option for higher tier drainflow assessments to be performed using the Webfram model.  Applicants should note that either approach to refining first tier exposure assessments is acceptable and it is not necessary to pass both methods. Applicants are encouraged to use either of the harmonised tools as soon as possible in regulatory submissions to the UK. However HSE will continue to accept individual Applicant approaches to running higher tier MACRO simulations for a period of 6 months (ie for submissions submitted to HSE up to June 2018).

HSE eBulletin service Research reports Update

 

Latest automated update(s) to Research reports on HSE's Website:

RR1106 – Summary of evidence – solvent-based hydrophobic coatings and risks for acute respiratory toxicity

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012) set minimum standards for the protection of employees and others from the risks related to exposure to asbestos. CAR2012 includes a statutory requirement to assess their effectiveness after they have been operational of a period of time: the so-called ‘Post Implementation Review’ (PIR). The purpose of the PIR is to evaluate the regulatory framework, rather than to examine government policy on control of asbestos.


RR1115 - Exposure to substances hazardous to health in foundries

Tackling the causes of occupational lung disease is a key priority for HSE. Foundry workers are potentially exposed to a wide range of hazardous substances, including, for example, respirable crystalline silica (RCS), metal fumes and dust, that can cause lung (and other) cancers and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).


RR1121 - Overview of carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects at HSE’s Buxton Laboratory

Over the last decade, the UK Government has supported innovation and growth in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology with the aim of commercial deployment. CCS research across the UK has reduced potential risks by helping to develop a thorough understanding of the operational hazards and by contributing to the design of safe plant and processes.


RR1122 - The Deepwater Horizon Incident: Fire and Explosion Issues

The loss of life and serious environmental damage from the blow out incident on the semi-submersible drilling rig Deepwater Horizon in 2010 in the US sector of the Gulf of Mexico has forced a reappraisal of the risks associated with drilling.

Maximum Residue Levels Workshop

HSE's Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD) is holding a one-day workshop on proposing and supporting Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs). The aim of the day will be to raise awareness, and to provide guidance for proposing and supporting MRLs. A mixture of formal presentations and workshops will be used to relay complete and up to date information on current and upcoming issues that relate to the EU MRL system.

 

The workshop will be held at the Chemicals Regulation Division in York on Thursday 1st February, 2018.  Registration will begin from 9:00 am.  The workshop will start at 9:30 am and finish around 4:30 pm.  The cost per delegate to attend the workshop will be £430 (plus VAT).

 

Topics of discussion

  • Overview of the EU MRL evaluation process
  • MRL policy and procedures in the EU
  • Risk assessment for MRLs
  • The review and risk management of MRLs
  • Future developments
  • Monitoring of compliance with MRLs in the UK and EU

 

The workshop will be presented by CRD Policy and Regulatory Specialists who will be available to answer your questions throughout the day. 

 

Target Audience

This course is specifically designed for technical and regulatory staff involved in the production and submission of data into the EU process.

Registrations

Because of the nature of the event, places will be limited to a maximum of 16 people, and will be issued on a first-come first-served basis.

If you wish to register for the above workshop please visit https://www.hsl.gov.uk/crd and complete an online registration form. The closing date for applications is the 11th January 2018.


Two Day Consumer Risk Assessment Workshop

HSE's Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD) is holding a two-day Consumer Risk Assessment workshop.  The aim of the event will be to raise awareness, provide guidance in the appropriate use of residue values in risk assessment models, and highlight commonly encountered problems and topical issues in the field of residues evaluation and consumer risk assessment. A mixture of presentations and case studies (workshop style) considered in an informal setting will be used to relay the information.

 

The workshop will be held at the Chemicals Regulation Division in York on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd February, 2018.  Registration will begin from 9:00 am.  The workshop will start at 9:30 am on day one and finish around 4:30 pm on day two.  The cost per delegate to attend the workshop will be £650 (plus VAT).

 

The course will cover:

  • Underlying principles of chronic and acute risk assessment calculations

  • Selection of residue values for risk assessment purposes, covering human dietary intakes and animal dietary burden assessment

  • Topical issues relevant to residues (e.g. residue definitions and new guidance) and consumer risk assessment (e.g. variability and cumulative exposure)
  • Processing factors and refining risk assessments
  • Rotational crop scenarios for residues assessments
  • Combined risk assessment – UK approach

Given the nature of the workshop, places will be limited to a maximum of 16 delegates.

Who should attend?

The event will be targeted at technical and regulatory staff involved in the production and submission of residues data to HSE (CRD), and those performing consumer risk assessments to support authorisations. The workshop is tailored both to those relatively new to residues work and those wanting to refresh their understanding of the principles of the residues and consumer risk assessment; the programme also aims to provide HSE (CRD) views on current topics.

The event might also be of interest in those involved in risk assessments based on the results of post-approval residue monitoring, however such individuals are encouraged to discuss their interest in attending with HSE (CRD) in the first instance, prior to booking.

Registrations

If you wish to register for the above workshop please visit https://www.hsl.gov.uk/crd and complete an online registration form. The closing date for applications is the 29th January 2018.
