Statistics on chemicals in Sweden


Much of the statistical data from the Swedish Chemicals Agency forms part of the Official Statistics of Sweden, and also forms the basis for research, joint planning and public information. The Agency is appointed by the Government to take responsibility for the official statistics in the field of Environmental Accounts and Sustainable Development; Sales and Use of Chemicals.

The statistics are based on information contained in reports on chemical products that must be reported every year to the Products Register on the part of manufacturing and importing companies. Read more about The Products Register and Statistics Sweden. External link.
