: On January 16, Taiwan has amended the name of the country’s toxic chemical law from Toxic Chemical Substance Control Act to Toxic Chemicals and Concerned Substances Control Act (TCCSCA).
Under the new Act, manufacturers or importers of new substances or a given quantity of existing chemical substance must apply to the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) for chemical substances information registration.
Enterprises need to apply for permits, registration or approval and comply with relevant management measures for toxic chemical substances depending on their classification. EPA usually announce toxic substances as Class 1, 2, 3 or 4.
