September 27, 2019
USA (United States of America)
Thailand published the 1st draft of the “Chemical Act” which will replace the currently effective Hazardous Substance Act and its amendments. The draft covers the entire chemical life cycle – from production, import, export, transport, transit, re-import, re-export, having in possession, sales, distribution, use, treatment, and disposal of chemical substances and mixtures, as well as to recycling. One of the most significant changes is the amendment of the chemical classification system. At present, chemicals are categorized into Type 1-4 Hazardous Substances.
