SDA Educates With

February 14, 2006

l The Soap and Detergent Association (SDA) introduced a 218-page publication for companies who manufacture or supply ingredients for cleaning, laundry and personal care products to put their use in a science-based context.
“Exposure and Risk Screening Methods for Consumer Product Ingredients” provides comprehensive data on exposure information and screening methods for chemical ingredients used in consumer products.
While originally designed to be of great value in putting High Production Volume (HPV) chemical hazard data into perspective, the book can be used for screening the risk of any ingredients in these products.
Hans Sanderson, Ph.D., SDA director of environmental safety, said that the intended audience for the document is chemical risk assessors within governmental agencies, businesses and stakeholder groups who have some experience in the area of consumer products exposure and risk assessment, and have responsibility for prioritizing chemical safety reviews of substances. It is also useful for assessors involved in chemical risk management work as a tool to improve the efficiency of resource utilization. More info: www.sdahq.org.
Another publication, “Risk Assessment Guidance for Enzyme-Containing Products” can be downloaded at www.sdahq.org/publications/technical. This new SDA publication provides the strategies and methods that have been used successfully by the industry to manage enzyme safety.
“Our new publication describes how product manufacturers can develop comprehensive programs to assess and manage the risks of using enzymes in consumer products,” said Francis Kruszewski, Ph.D., SDA director of human health and safety. “We outline strategies and methods that have been used successfully by the industry.”
The intended audiences for Risk Assessment Guidance for Enzyme-Containing Products are toxicologists, risk assessors and product safety professionals in industries formulating products containing enzymes.
