A company must apply in writing to the Swedish Chemicals Agency for a permit to become a commercial agent.
If you have a commercial agent permit and you are reporting products and quantities on behalf of another party, you must pay a chemical charge to the Products Register.
If you engage a commercial agent
If you engage a commercial agent to register your products, you must nevertheless report your activity to the Products Register.
Even though you are engaging a commercial agent, you are responsible for ensuring that your products are reported. Check with your agent to ensure that the information is submitted. The Company Register lists companies that have obtained permits by acting as commercial agents.
Review of the process for commercial agents
During 2019 the Swedish Chemicals Agency will continue its review of the application process for commercial agents.
Earlier permit holders have been given a chance to prolong their permits for 2018.
Companies that have not been granted a prolonged permit
A number of companies have not been granted a prolonged period of their permits to act as commercial agents for 2018. This means that clients to these companies now have to register their products themselves to the Products Register, no later than 28 February 2019.
The companies that have not been granted a prolonged period of their permits are:
DOW SVERIGE AB
INEOS SVERIGE AB
KEMIRA KEMI AKTIEBOLAG
SPECIALKEMI VÄST AB
