The Swedish Chemicals Agency (Kemi) has published data from the National Product Register in 2010 on the types of chemical products used in Sweden and the substances included in them. The figures show that the number of products containing chemicals increased significantly in 2010 compared to 2009, with more 7,500 chemicals reported, representing a 10% increase from the previous year. In addition, the agency has implemented a new system to present the data, including statistics to enable easier analysis of the figures.
