GSC advocates that countries use a risk-based weight-of-evidence (WoE) approach which considers exposure to evaluate the safety of silicone materials.
GSC also advocates that countries and regulatory authorities avoid adopting assessment conclusions or risk-management approaches from countries or regions that do not utilize risk-based WoE approaches.
A fundamental underpinning of the silicones industry’s commitment to product stewardship is the belief that comprehensive, robust, risk-based assessments utilizing a WoE approach should be the primary driver for development of chemical regulatory policy. A core requirement for the development of scientific assessments is the availability of high-quality data. The silicones industry’s willingness to develop those data is an illustration of the industry’s commitment to the generation of sound science to support chemical regulatory decision-making.
