SUMI – An industry developed new concept for chemical mixtures

SUMI, Safe Use of Mixtures Information, was developed through a “bottom-up” approach by CEPE/EuPIA and other downstream associations to facilitate communication of safe use information for mixtures based on substance ESs. It is envisioned that information will be provided for hazardous mixtures, supplied for occupational uses (i.e. industrial/professional), however note that it is not necessary to use this approach for non-hazardous mixtures, even though you may supply an SDS.

This white paper provides a background on REACH as well as new concepts and terminology that SUMI provides.
