GreenScreen Version 1.4 updated

Version 1.4 of the GreenScreen for Safer Chemicals Hazard Assessment Guidance has been updated to assess the hazards of chemicals, materials, polymers and products. 

The GreenScreen assessment is an evaluation of a chemical’s intrinsic human health and environmental hazards and provides a standardized and easy-to-understand score to facilitate communication throughout supply chains and within organizations.

The guidance was launched in 2007 and is regularly updated. This latest revision includes new GreenScreen Hazard Criteria specific to polymers and new GreenScreen Assessment Reporting Templates specific to polymers and products.

A webinar providing technical information about the updated method and how to apply it will be held on February 28 2018.
