Japan CSCL and ISHL


Background of Japan CSCL and ISHL

Japan CSCL and ISHL

Japan was the first country in the world to establish a risk prevention and control system for new chemical substances. There are currently two laws governing new chemical substances in Japan: Japan Chemical Substances Control Law (CSCL) enacted in October 1973 and Industrial Safety and Health Control Law (ISHL) enacted in 1972. The main function of the CSCL is to evaluate new chemical substances before they are marketed, thereby preventing the risk of harm to human health and the ecological environment. And the main function of the ISHL is to establish a risk control and disaster prevention system to ensure a safe and healthy workplace and a convenient and comfortable work environment.

Although both the CSCL and ISHL impose regulatory requirements for the declaration of new chemical substances entering the Japanese market, the two regulations differ in terms of several specific requirements, such as the definition of new chemical substances, notification requirements, the subject of the declaration, and data requirements. For chemical manufacturers or suppliers doing business in Japan, it is necessary to clarify whether the products are new chemical substances under the two regulations and to respond to compliance according to the requirements of the two regulations respectively.
