2.Toxic Chemical Control Law (TCCL) New Chemicals Notification - Chemicals Excluded from Toxicity Review Toxic Chemicals Observational Chemicals Chemicals already Notified to the MOE as new chemical Other Substances to be Designated by Presidential Decree 13


2.Toxic Chemical Control Law (TCCL) New Chemicals Not Subject to Notification 100 kg or less per year R & D Chemicals Chemicals enclosed in machinery Articles in solid state Some natural chemicals Chemicals accepted and announced by the Head of NIER as having been manufactured domestically or imported into Korea before Feb. 2, 1991 Review Period: 45 days 14


2.Toxic Chemical Control Law (TCCL) Data Requirement for Notification * From 2006, will be expanded step by step (First year, ecotoxicity data) * Listed on at least Two Other Foreign Inventories Before 1991 ** Meet the Definition of OECD Polymer Types Basic Data Set One of following sets Simplified - Acute oral test + Ames test; Notification* - Acute oral test + Chromosomal aberration test; or - Biodegradability (for biodegradable chemicals) Polymer Molecular weight, Characteristics, Stability data Notification** Full Acute oral test + Ames test + Notification Chromosomal aberration test + Biodegradability test 15
