    On Jan 11th, 2018, Thailand Ministry of Industry (MOI) issued a government gazette detailing changes to the List of Hazardous Substances under the Hazardous Substances Control Act (HSCA). This is the 3rd time that MOI issued an official gazette to revise the list. With these changes made, the current List of Hazardous Substances is now in its 4th edition. (Click here to see the changes made in 2016 and 3rd edition of the List)

    The detailed changes are as follows (1 substances removed, 23 chemicals added, and 4 are modified):

    • Item 159, “methanol or methyl alcohol” is removed from sub-list 4.1;
    • New use conditions are added for item 7 and item 9 of sub-list 1.2 under the Department of Agriculture (DOA);
    • New use conditions are added for item 2 and item 3 of sub-list 4.3 under the Food and Drug Administration (FDA);
    • 23 types of chemicals are added into list 5 which is regulated by Department of Industrial Works (DIW). Click here to see ChemLinked report for detailed information.

    The substances included in the List of Hazardous Chemicals are subject to various compliance obligations based on their hazard types, including notification, registration, applying for permits, etc. But it should be noted that non-listed substances still need to be notified to DIW if they have one of the 10 hazardous properties specified by DIW. The notified substances will be added to the List of Hazardous Chemicals as sub-list 5.6 and eventually included in Thailand’s national chemicals inventory.

    Hello, in the paragraph" (Click here to see the changes made in 2017 and 3rd edition of the List)", the user is directed to a 2016 content: On Dec 14th 2016, Thailand Ministry of Industry (MOI) issued a notice (B.E. 2559), making some changes to the List of Hazardous Substances under the Hazardous Substances Control Act (HSCA). Can you clarify and/or revise? Thank you

    Dear Raluca, sorry that was a typo. The 3rd edition was published in late 2016. Thank you for pointing out. :-)

    Thank you very much. Can you please specify what is the official name of the current edition/revision of the Hazardous Substances List? The "Notification of Ministry of Industry on List of Hazardous Substances (No. 3) B.E.2559 (2016)" is amended by this latest communicated amendment no. 4 from Jan 2018; I suppose that it will have a 2018 date and another B.E.number? Thank you again.
