The Regional Chemicals Management Forum is a platform for regional collaboration on chemicals management on government level between Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar (Burma), Thailand and Vietnam. The Swedish Chemicals Agency helps organizing the forums and contributes with expertise in different areas.
The Regional Chemicals Management Forum is one part of the regional programme "Towards a non-toxic South-East Asia" where the Swedish Chemicals Agency has actively been supporting regional collaboration in the area of chemicals management. Representatives from government level meet regularly to discuss current issues in the field of chemicals, inform each other about work in progress and listen to presentations by invited experts.
In addition to the regional forums, the Swedish Chemicals Agency also organizes more specialized workshops and training in fields such as classification and labelling of chemicals, inspection methodology and legislation development.
