    Published on 8 May 2018 by MoE Notice No.2018-0384, South Korea’s Ministry of Environment (MoE) is now consulting on a newly designated restricted substance. 

    The latest Restricted Chemical Substances List contains 12 kinds of chemical substances (given number as 06-5-1~06-5-12, see here). The substance (see details below) will be added into the list since it poses a high human exposure risk in indoor spaces.

    Manufacture, importation, sales, keeping, storage, transportation and use for waterproof flooring for building purpose are prohibited 

    If it is officially approved as a restricted chemical substance, the corresponding obligations under the Chemical Control Act (CCA) shall be complied with, including written confirmation of chemical details before the first-time manufacture or import, and the follow-up permission management for import, export and business activities (see details).
