Thailand to Amend the List of Hazardous Substance to Comply with International Conventions

To catch up with the international standards, Thailand is planning to strengthen the management of triethanolamine, benzyl cyanide, and PFOA and its related compounds.

On May 3rd, 2021, the Thailand Department of Industrial Works (DIW) issued a notice [1] to solicit public comments on a new amendment [2] to the List of Hazardous Substances. The List (No.6) was released on June 1, 2020, which prohibited the use of chlorpyrifos, Paraquat, and their derivatives (ChemLinked News [3]). In this new draft for comments, the management of triethanolamine, benzyl cyanide, and PFOA and its related compounds are strengthened, to comply with the requirements of the Chemical Weapons Convention, International Special Surveillance List (ISSL), and Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs).
