Webinar: Introduction to Chemical Regulation in Japan, Incorporating the Latest Updates to GHS

    The webinar will cover the following Laws governing chemicals in Japan and provide the latest updates to GHS:

    • The Poisonous and Deleterious Substances Control Law (PDSCL)
    • Industrial Safety and Health Law (ISHL)
    • Chemical Substance Control Law (CSCL)
    • The Promotion of Chemical Management Law (PRTR)

    The Poisonous and Deleterious Substances Control Law was implemented in 1950 for public health protection purposes. The Law imposes a licensing requirement on manufacturers, importers and companies selling substances that are listed as poisonous or deleterious substances. It also sets out prescribed standards for manufacturing and storing of substances listed in these categories, and for the identification of them on labels.

    The Industrial Safety and Health Law was introduced in 1972 to protect the health and safety of workers. The IHSL regulates chemical substances that require safety data sheets and labels and requires new substances to be notified to the Japanese Ministry of Labor and Welfare (MHLW) prior to production and importation.

    The Japanese Chemical Substance Control Law was enacted in 1973 following a mass poisoning incident involving PCB contamination of rice ban oil used in poultry farms and by consumers. The purpose of the Law is to prevent environmental pollution of chemical substances that pose a risk to human health or the environment. The CSCL regulates both new and existing substances and applies to manufactures and importers.

    The purpose of the Japanese Promotion of Chemical Management Law is to encourage voluntary improvements in the management of categorised chemical substances for environmental protection purposes. According to the PRTR Law, certain companies are required to report the release of chemical substances of concern and provide information on designated substances in safety data sheets.

    Who should attend?

    The webinar will be of interest to organisations involved in supplying chemicals to Japan, to companies with affiliates or customers in Japan, and to anyone who is interested in the Japanese regulatory system.
