Taiwan releases guidance for priority existing chemical substances registration


The standard registration for 106 priority existing chemical substances (PECs) at or above one tonne a year began on January 1, 2020.

The long-awaited Guidance was finally published on June 9 to help businesses to navigate the standard registration of PECs.

Taiwan encourages use of data acquired from public databases and allows registrants to submit the hazard and exposure assessment report later.

The authority is assessing the possibility to postpone the registration deadline for the 106 PECs.

On June 9, 2020, Taiwan finalized the Guidance on Existing Chemical Substances Standard Registration . It was initially drafted in March and updated in September 2019.
