The Commodity Guide enables you to search for different types of commodities, the materials these usually consist of, and substances that may be included in the materials. Searches can also be made for single materials and substances to see the commodities and groups of commodities in which they are used.
The Commodity Guide is an attempt at placing commodities in a system and providing an overview of the commodities and materials used in Sweden. It is an impossible task for an authority to compile the composition of each individual product on the market and to keep it fully updated. However, it is possible to systematise the general knowledge available on the typical composition of commodities and materials.
Today’s product development means the continuous marketing of new materials. The chemical compositions of the materials are changing, too. The idea is that those who possess knowledge about individual groups of commodities or materials should be able to contribute in the form of data in developing the Commodity Guide.
