The Swedish Chemicals Agency uses the Products Register to store information on chemical products and biotechnical organisms that are manufactured in or transferred or imported into Sweden and information on the ways in which these are being used. Anyone manufacturing or importing products that have to be reported must provide this information to the Agency.
How should you report and what shall be reported?
All reporting to the Products Register is done via our web-portal.
If your products fall under the obligation to report, the following steps should be taken:
- Create an account and report your business activity
You must submit an activity report regardless of how much of a notifiable product you manufacture or imports into Sweden. If you do not already have an account, start here by choosing the type of log in you prefer and create an account.
- Product Registration
If the annual volume per product is at least 100 kg, you must also report the products. The products shall be reported as soon as possible, but no later than 28 February the year after import/production of the products started.
- Annual reporting of quantities
If you have reported products, you must also report the amount you manufacture or import into Sweden annually. At the beginning of each year, you will be reminded of the annual revision of the information submitted to the Products Register. Produce the accounting report in time for it to be filed in the Products Register no later than 12 pm on 28 February.
Is your product a pesticide?
If your product is a notifiable chemical pesticide, you must also, in addition to reporting it, apply for an authorisation for approval before you may sell and use it in Sweden.
Information for foreign companies
Suppliers providing composition information to their customers
In some cases, the company obligated to report their products to the Products Register does not have access to the composition for the products. For example, a Swedish company importing a product into Sweden from a foreign supplier is obligated to report the product, but the foreign supplier is the only one that has access to the product composition. In these cases, the foreign supplier can send their composition directly to the Products Register, without the customer having access to it.
The information about the product composition is called a Product-in-product (PiP). Once it is registered in our system, it is given a registration number, a so called A- number. The A-number can then be used as a reference to the product composition by the foreign supplier in communications with their Swedish customer in order for them to fulfil their obligation to report the product properly.
At the present, the reporting of a PiP is done with a paper form.

The declaration of product in product will be complemented in the Products Register Web-portal and is planned to be released in the autumn of 2017. Updates on the progress will be posted here.
