    Recently, the Philippine Environmental Management Bureau under the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR-EMB) updated the online search system of the Philippine Inventory of Chemicals and Chemical Substances (PICCS) on its website to the 2015 version.

    The PICCS was firstly published in 1995 and has been updated several times since then. PICCS functions as the inventory of existing chemicals in the Philippines. Manufacturers and importers don’t have to conduct new chemical notification (PMPIN) if their chemicals are already listed in the PICCS, unless the chemicals are listed in the Priority Chemicals List (PCL) or subject to Chemical Control Orders (CCO).

    Although the notified new chemicals are added in PICCS annually, the online database of the authority is based on the 2015 version of PICCS. Enterprises could do the new chemicals search on their own first, and then contact the authorities if necessary (for example, the CBI issues).
