Alternatives Assessment

ToxServices perfoms Alternatives Assessments following the IC2 Alternatives Assessment Guide.

Alternatives Assessment is an approach used to assess a chemical's impact on human health and the environment. The goal is to find a science-based solution that identifies hazards, promoting the selection of less hazardous chemical ingredients.

Alternatives Assessment tools have numerous applications, including:

  • Enabling the prioritization of chemicals for reduction or phase-out
  • From any phase in product life cycle (e.g., manufacturing, product design)
  • From the whole supply chain
  • Assisting in the selection of alternatives for the following:
    • Banned or restricted chemicals
    • Chemicals that are perceived as hazardous by the public
    • Identifying and classifying Restricted Use Materials (RUMs) for retailers.
