CEFAS Template renewed for Sobo S Gold 08
One of the most popular rigwashes used in the North Sea, Sobo S Gold 08, has been recertified by CEFAS to OCNS Gold Standard.
Every three years the hazard assessment of chemical products that are used offshore need to be re-assessed by the Centre for Environment Fisheries & Aquaculture Science (CEFAS), as part of the Offshore Chemical Notification Scheme (OCNS),
CEFAS applies a Chemical Hazard & Risk Management (CHARM) model to calculate the ratio of ‘Predicted Effect Concentration’ against ‘No Effect Concentration’. This allows the product to be ranked in the form of a Hazard Quotient. Part of this assessment includes toxicity, biodegradation and bioaccumulation. To allow users to very quickly understand the hazard quotient of a product, CEFAS in the UK use a colour branding system, as follows:
|As you will see, Sobo S Gold 08 has been classified by CEFAS as GOLD meaning that it has the lowest possible Hazard Quotient available!|
