"Safe Use of Mixtures Information- SUMI"

Wednesday, 4 July 2018

In June A.I.S.E. published the SUMI package. This stands for “Safe Use of Mixtures Information- SUMI" and is a tool which offers companies supplying to the industrial and professional cleaning industry a standardized way to communicate Operational Conditions and Risk Management Measures (OC/RMM).


The "Safe Use of Mixtures Information- SUMI" (previously called "Generic Exposure Information from Substances – GEIS”), is a tool which offers companies supplying to the industrial and professional cleaning industry a standardized way to communicate Operational Conditions and Risk Management Measures (OC/RMM). These conditions in the SUMI refer to a typical use of the product and they depend on the application rather than on its chemical composition. The format and the language of the SUMIs are intentionally simple and clear. The target audience is people who use these products and may not have deep chemical knowledge and are not familiar with the REACH jargon used in Exposure Scenarios (ES).
