CAS no for dangerous substances

Posted by admin on 25th April 2015

In Sweden and Denmark lists of substances belonging to generic groups in annex I to directive 67/548/EEC have been developed resulting in tables covering all CAS numbers with harmonised classifications from the authorities. Though the two tables has not yet been worked over to identify differences and possibly errors, NPG has chosen to put the tables with CAS numbers and Index number on our home page, as a help for those, who are not sure if a harmonised classification is available for a specific substance.

New report: The Nordic Product Registers and the future REACH substance database

Posted by admin on 2nd March 2007

A new report: ‘The Nordic Product Registers and the future REACH substance database. Comparison of the registration systems and options for future developments’ is now available. The European Commission launched on 29 october 2003 its proposal for a new chemical legislation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). In 2006 the Nordic Chemicals Group granted funds to the Nordic Product Register Group to start a joint Nordic project on “The Nordic Product Registers and the future REACH substance database. Comparison of the registration systems and options for future developments”. The objective of the project was to clarify the extent of overlap between REACH substance database and the Product Registers and characterize the added value of the Nordic Product Registers.The REACH substance database and the Product Registers are different systems. These differences are compared and discussed in this report with proposals for use of Product Register information in the implementation of REACH.
