South Korea Considers Appending Existing Chemical Inventory with 10 Non-Toxic Substances

Published on 10 Oct 2016 by MoE Notice No. 2016-739, MoE is now consulting on 10 non-toxic chemical substances (Given No. 2016-3-7176~2016-3-7185) until 30 Oct 2016. If no objection is submitted, these substances will be officially added to South Korea’s Existing Chemical Substance Inventory (KECI). Details of the 10 existing substances are specified as below.

This batch of substances was notified under the Toxic Chemical Control Act (TCCA) during 1 Apr 2013 and 30 Sep 2013. They have previously undergone toxicity assessment and were designated as non-toxic.
