New Industry Obligations in Thailand – Publication of List 5.6

16 March, 2016

In order to establish an “Existing Chemical Inventory” in Thailand, DIW posed new obligations to the chemical industry. For substances and products which were not classified as Hazardous Type 1 to 4, but which have one or more hazard properties as described in List 5.6, needs to submit a notification to DIW if these substances are imported to or manufactured in Thailand. Based on these notifications and other data sources, the inventory will be compiled after 31 December 2016. All chemicals not in the inventory will be considered as New Chemicals and have to undergo a more complicated registration, including a full risk assessment report.
