PRIO – A tool for Risk Reduction of Chemicals

Products register data

For some substances, the database contains information on

  • how many chemical products contain the substance in Sweden
  • how many of these are available to consumers
  • what volumes of the substance are handled.

The information is based on the particulars reported to the Swedish Chemicals Agency's products register. All companies which manufacture or import a chemical product (substance or preparation) into Sweden must report the contents of the product to the products register. The information from the products register does not say anything about the occurrence of the substance in articles that are not chemical products. In some cases the number of products cannot be stated because fewer than three enterprises have notified the substance. The old OBS list only contained substances that had been reported to the products register in quantities in excess of one tonne.
