South Korea Designates 31 New Toxic Chemicals

31 new substances were listed as toxic chemical substances after hazard evaluation under K-REACH. They are still considered new chemical substances in South Korea and require new chemical registration other than the original registrants. Transitional measures were provided for control of these toxic substances under CCA regulation.

On July 17, 2020, South Korea's National Institute of Environmental Research (NIER) officially listed 31 toxic chemical substances (Given No. 2020-1-970~2020-1-1000) into the Toxic Chemical Substances List (TCSL). They were registered and found toxic after the hazard evaluation under K-REACH. In addition, the concentration limits of 7 toxic chemical substances that were previously desiganted (Given No. 97-1-12, 2006-1-556, 2006-1-557, 2006-1-558, 2014-1-694, 2019-1-930 and 2019-1-951) were updated. The updates came into effective immediately.
