The concept of safety and sustainability by design has been examined within the EU borders for quite some time now. Five documentations have been published already, with the proposed approaches for the SSbD framework.
The five approaches can be divided into the policy/regulatory perspective (JRC, EEA, OECD) and the industry perspective (cefic, chemsec).
A new EC recommendation document on the SSbD assessment framework is being under development and expected to be published at the end of 2022, which will contain enough information for the implementation of the JRC framework by the industry. The recommendation will be addressed to member states, industry, academia and research and technologies organisations.
