The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has approved the procedure for the creation and operation of the Information System for Ensuring Chemical Safety.

In particular, businesses will be able to online:

  • provide documents for registration of a chemical substance;
  • obtain permission to use toxic and especially dangerous chemicals withdrawn from the market;
  • report the use of an alternative name for a chemical substance;
  • submit a notification on the hazard classification of chemical products.

Information about:

  • chemical products, their volumes supplied to the market and hazardous properties;
  • potential risks associated with the use of chemicals and safety precautions;
  • manufacturers, importers, suppliers of chemical products;
  • chemical incidents and identified chemical safety hazards.
