Global Chemical Inventories 2011

Updated in Nov 2011

As part of chemical management policies, many countries and regions have compiled their own lists of chemical substances that are manufactured or imported into that country or region. Those lists are used primarily to distinguish between new and existing chemicals.

In general, chemical substances that are not listed in chemical inventories will be regarded as new chemical substances and shall be notified to authorities prior to manufacture or import.

The following table summarizes a few main chemical inventories in the world. For more info about those inventories and how to search, please click navigation menu at the left of this webpage.
