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!
