Assess Chemicals with GreenScreen®
Are you interested in assessing the hazards associated with a given chemical using GreenScreen® for Safer Chemicals? Then you have landed in the right place! Here we describe ways to obtain GreenScreen® Assessments. If you are interested in assessing a mixture, material or product using GreenScreen, then first read our FAQ on this subject.
First, visit the GreenScreen Assessment Store to determine whether a GreenScreen Assessment is publicly available for your chemical of interest. You can search for available Assessments by chemical name, Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) number, or functional use. GreenScreen Assessments in the store are Certified, meaning they were performed by Licensed GreenScreen Profilers or equivalent. Assessments are considered valid for three years; for many chemicals, new data are rapidly emerging and this timeframe was established to ensure new information is considered.
If you cannot find an Assessment for your chemical of interest in the store, you can hire a Licensed GreenScreen Profiler to perform an Assessment for you. Licensed GreenScreen Profilers are organizations that have demonstrated expertise in toxicology and chemistry and that have the capacity to provide Certified GreenScreen Assessments on a consulting basis. Clean Production Action does not establish pricing for GreenScreen Assessment services; contact the organizations directly for contract and cost information.
Depending on your resources and expertise, you can obtain training to become an Authorized GreenScreen® Practitioner™ and conduct GreenScreen Assessments for your organization. Clean Production Action’s Authorized GreenScreen Practitioner Program provides our most advanced training in the GreenScreen method. Successful participants are licensed to complete Authorized Assessments for their registered organizations. In addition, if third-party review is ever desired or needed, they are licensed to submit their Authorized Assessments to Clean Production Action to become Certified Assessments.
