Taiwan’s New and Existing Chemical Registration Regulation was revised and promulgated on 11 March 2019. The amendment details have been reported by ChemLinked (CL news).
During the industry focused seminar held on 26 Mar 2019 in Taipei, the revised regulatory landscape was introduced to aid in timely preparation of annual reporting and the standard registration of existing chemical substances. Some issues that may be of your interest are introduced as below.
1. Annual reporting
Annual reporting of registered new and existing substances between 1st of Apr to 30th of Sep is mandatory from 2020. For existing chemical substances manufactured or imported below 100kg/year, registrants can voluntarily apply for phase 1 registration. The annual reporting is mandatory as long as the substance is registered.
If a company receives the registration code in March 2020 and there is no manufacture/import activities in the last year, it is still necessary to submit an annual report and the filled quantity should be “0”.
The information that the annual report needs to contain includes the information of the registrant, the registration code and the quantity in the last year. If an overseas manufacturer designates a TPR to complete registration, it is very likely to still rely on the TPR for the submission of annual report. Otherwise for mixtures, if the importer does not know the content of the substance with the corresponding registration code, the final tonnage cannot be calculated, and the overseas manufacturer still needs to assist with the annual report.
