Vietnam Updates Chemicals Inventory List

Vietnam’ s Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) has published an updated version of the National Chemicals Inventory and a parallel Announcement (in Vietnamese only). The list now contains entries for 4,927 substances. That number includes about 1,500 more substances than the first version, which was published at the end of last year.

Companies can comment on the list and suggest additions by contacting the ministry. ChemicalWatch has indicated that substances not on the list will be considered new and require registration.

Vietnam’s chemicals law dates from 2007. Its provisions cover how to work with chemicals and the obligations that companies have when dealing with chemicals.
