Background

The International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM) in 2006 adopted a Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM). This initiative was agreed upon by government and non-government institutions globally to adopt an initiative aimed at making chemicals safer for humans and the planet.

The European Union, United States, Japan and many more countries have implemented or are in the process of implementing new chemical regulations. The regulations include Chemicals in “Substances”, “Preparations” and “Articles”. The intention of the regulations is to provide “appropriate” “risk management” and “education” to all that use or are exposed to chemicals, including the environment.
