    1. MoE has proposed a new chemical safety management program based on findings that indicate the current requirements as mandated by the Chemical Control Act (CCA) are inadequate to ensure safety during handling/treatment of hazardous chemicals, particularly for existing equipment commissioned prior to the enactment of the CCA.
    2. The goal of the MoE new safety program is to improve the operational safety of hazardous chemicals treatment equipment/facilities and increase the number of safety management programs.
    3. MoE has offered recommendations to aid industry based on analysis of a list of problems commonly encountered by industry during on-site safety management. The data sources were 25 interviews, on-site visits, and discussion with industry experts conducted since the beginning of 2018.
    4. MoE plans to issue relevant notifications in June after hosting sessions in different regions during which MoE will explain key findings and gather more feedback from industry and other relevant stakeholders.
