Chemical Substance Inventory in Taiwan,China（TCSI） was firstly published by the Ministry of Labor in 2014. After several supplements and the compilation of the chemical substances nominated by Taiwan Environmental Protection Administration, currently the TCSI includes over 100,000 existing chemical substances. New chemical substances that have completed standard registrations in Taiwan will also be added to the TCSI if they meet relevant requirements.
► Chemical substances listed in the TCSI are existing chemical substances. All manufactured or imported existing substances with tonnage 0.1t/y shall be pre-registered (Phase 1 registration) prior to first production or import in Taiwan.
► Chemical substances that are not listed in the TCSI are new chemical substances and shall be subject to new chemical substance registration prior to production/import in Taiwan. The registration of new chemicals is divided into three types based on the form of the substance, applicable situations, or hazard levels, including standard registration, simplified registration, and small volume registration.
