New webinars: Criteria - chemical content and lifecycle aspects

Byggvarubedömningen's assessments are based on the product's chemical content as well as several life cycle criteria. These criteria are developed by a criteria group comprising expert representatives from our member companies. When necessary, we also seek assistance from external experts.

The assessment concerning chemical content includes a total of 29 sub-criteria, primarily based on the classification limits of the constituent substances according to the chemical legislation REACH and the CLP Regulation. It is the individual properties of the substances that are assessed, not potential classification in mixtures.

Assessment of life cycle aspects considers the entire lifespan of the product, divided into production, usage, and waste phases. Currently, 6 main areas have been selected to represent these phases.

We are pleased to announce that we will be offering in-depth webinars in this field starting from February 13, 2024. Similar to other courses provided by the Byggvarubedömningen, these are free of charge and will be conducted online via Teams. Sign up here.
