Data and information on suppliers and chemicals
Data on chemical properties as well as information on suppliers of chemicals, that is importers and producers, and the occurrence of their chemicals in the country is a crucial part of a system for chemicals control.
In setting up systems for chemicals management and in developing and implementing legislation on chemicals placed on the market, there are a number of tasks that should be carried out by the government and its authorities that benefit from knowledge on which producers and importers are active on the national market, which chemicals these companies produce or import and the properties of those chemicals.
How to find information
There are different ways of acquiring necessary information on chemical properties, companies in countries as well as on the chemicals they place on the market.
