Taiwan’s EPA has delayed publication of the Guidelines on Registration of Designated Existing Substances

The revised Guidelines on Registration of Designated Existing Substances have not yet been officially published but are expected by the end of 2018. As a result, registration of Designated Existing Substance under the new system is expected to start from 2019.

The Toxic and Chemical Substance Bureau (TCSB) and Safety and Health Technology Centre is holding a series of seminars (TCSB-SAHTECH seminars) to familiarise companies with the new system and to enable companies to ask questions. A recent seminar introduced the revised legislation and covered the following topics:

  • Scope of registration;
  • Categories of registration and related data;
  • Registration workflow and information systems;
  • Information on Joint Registration, and registration review;
  • Management and information disclosure
