Publication new MeClas article

Frederik Verdonck, Patrick Van Sprang and Isabelle Vercaigne from the ARCHE Consulting team are co-author of the new MeClas article “MeClas: An online tool for hazard identification and classification of complex inorganic metal-containing materials”.

MeClas is a web-based tool to generate (eco)toxicity hazard categories and corresponding classification & labelling information of inorganic metal-containing complex materials such as ores, concentrates, intermediates or alloys for which the manual application of the GHS/CLP rules is very complex and requires a high level of consistency. The tool comprises several tiers, aimed at the progressive refinement of classification through recognition of specific mineral content, speciation/mineralogy up to bio-availability corrections.

The full article is being published in the “Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology” Journal and is available online (free access to the article until 24 September).
