New requirements will come into force on Dec. 11, 2014. Several new rules have been issued in preparation for the implementation of Taiwan's latest chemical registration system.
Taiwan’s new chemical registration system will be set in motion on Dec.11, 2014. Completing a national existing chemical substance inventory (ECSI) is a prerequisite for Taiwan new chemical substance notification.
Substances not listed in the ECSI are regarded as new chemical substances subject to new chemical substance registration under the revised TCSCA, except where certain exemption conditions are met.
The new chemical substance should be registered 90 days before manufacture or importation. Based on the tonnage band and usage information, three registration types will be adopted, including standard registration, simplified registration, and low-volume registration.
- Polymer applicable to the 2 % Rule
- Polymer of low concern below 1 t/y
- For scientific research below 1 t/y
- Incidental reaction products or impurities without intended commercial purpose
- Inseparable intermediates
- Mixture (not applicable to chemical substances in the mixture containing new chemical substance)
- Articles (not applicable if the substances contained in the article will be intentionally released during normal use)
- A substance or a polymer occurred in nature
- Chemical substances accompanied in machines and equipment for test‐run purpose
- Chemical substances under customs supervision
- Chemical substances for national defense purpose
