Substances and materials that must be notified to the Product Registry
Danish companies have a duty to notify hazardous chemical products to the Product Registry.The registration scheme applies to notifiable products that are produced or imported for industrial use in quantities of 100 kg or more per year.
The following products are notifiable:
- Substances and materials that are classified as hazardous under the Danish Ministry of the Environment's regulations. Such products can often be immediately recognised by the presence of a label with a hazard symbol on an orange background.
However, products classified as "Flammable" or "Environmental Hazard" do not always bear a hazard symbol.
- Substances and materials assigned an occupational exposure limit in the WEA list of Limit Values for Substances and Materials.
- Materials that contain 1% or more of a substance that has been assigned an occupational exposure limit in the WEA list of Limit Values for Substances and Materials.
Materials containing 1% or more of a substance classified as a health or environmental hazard according to the Danish Ministry of the Environment's regulation, cf. section 5 of Executive Order on Special Duties of Manufacturers, Suppliers and Importers, etc., of Substances and Materials.
The information to be submitted to the Product Registry is stated in the WEA Guideline on the notification of substances and materials, Annex 2.
The requirement to notify extends to products used on offshore installations or on board ships.
Notification of offshore products is subject to special rules.
