    • Taiwan MoL issued a guidance for companies to claim CBI on SDSs.
    • The revised regulation for labelling and SDSs compilation of hazardous chemicals was issued on Nov 9th, 2018.

    Taiwan’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Ministry of Labor has recently published a guidance for companies to apply to protect confidential business information on safety data sheets (SDSs). It is introduced following the Revised Labeling and Hazard Communication Regulation (hereafter referred to as “revised Regulation”) which was published and entered into force on Nov 9th for all hazardous chemicals.

    Companies can claim CBI on SDSs via the online platform in Taiwan from Sep 1st, 2016. This Guidance is an updated version introducing online application procedures, tools, submission requirements, naming principles for generic names, hazard classification description and proofs, etc.

    According to Article 18 of the revised Regulation, data protection of the name, content (%), CAS No., manufacturers, importers or suppliers of hazardous chemicals on SDSs can be applied for. If applications are accepted, this information will not be displayed on SDSs or labels. Re-submission is limited to 2 times within a 30 day period upon receiving the request for correction or supplementation if the submission is found unqualified or incomplete.

    As specified in Article 18-1 of the revised Regulation, ineligibility conditions for data protection on SDSs include chemicals listed in the Standards of Permissible Exposure Limits in the Workplace and hazardous chemicals with certain hazard classification according to the CNS 15030 serial standards.
