ECHA has published an Excel format for downstream users in the coating and surface treatment industry to report the results of their monitoring programmes to ECHA.
The authorisation decisions require users to monitor worker exposure to chromium trioxide and emissions to wastewater and air from the local exhaust ventilation system.
The format is tailored to certain downstream users of chromium trioxide operating under two authorisation decisions: C(2020)8797 (CTACSub) and C(2020)8735 (REACHLaw Ltd).
The information will be submitted annually and made available to authorisation holders to validate their exposure scenarios and prepare possible review reports for authorisation renewal applications. The first deadline is 18 December 2021.
