  1. Japan

    Chemical Substance Control Law (Kashinho)

    Enforced in 1973 and subsequently revised as of April 1, 2010, the Chemical Substance Control Law (Kashinho) now mandates notification of production and import volumes. Out of the total registrations acquired in Japan, we have handled 25% of low-molecular substances and 30% of high-molecular substances, reflecting our strengths and capabilities for dealing with Japan’s regulatory framework.
