Course Overview

This one-day course provides a comprehensive overview of the chemical control framework in Japan. It covers current Japanese regulations concerning hazardous chemical substances and their production, import, and use, as well as some essential hazard communication requirements including the GHS-based labeling and SDS requirements implemented by Japan.  The course also discusses new substance notification systems and the procedures involving notification, highlighting features of Japanese inventories under the Chemical Substance Control Law and the Industrial Safety and Health Law.  Effective in April 2011, risk assessment of existing chemical substances has been implemented in Japan, and now any business that manufactures or imports chemical substance in Japan is required to report annual tonnage and usage information of its chemical to the government. The course is mainly aimed to assist the businesses that deal with chemicals and chemical products in Japan by introducing not only the basic concept and scope of the each law and regulation but also practical guidance and tools that help them comply with relevant regulatory requirements.
