Vietnam National Existing Chemical Inventory

Little Pro on 2016-10-28

Vietnam is developing a new national existing chemical inventory similar to other countries (US, China, Japan, etc) and a REACH-like registration scheme for new chemical substances (substances which are not listed in the inventory).

Latest Updates of Vietnam National Chemical Inventory(NCI)

Since Oct 2016, the Ministry of Industry and Technology of Vietnam have been working on compiling a national existing chemical inventory for Vietnam. The draft national chemical inventory (NCI) is available for search in Vietnam's national chemical database launched in August 2018. The latest draft inventory (3rd version) includes around 31,750 chemical substances.

You can also search the draft inventory free of charge via Vietnam's national database.

After the Vietnam national inventory of chemicals has been issued, chemical substances which are not listed in the inventory will be considered as new chemical substances. Those new substances need to be registered before they can be used in Vietnam or circulated on Vietnam market.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade has established a dedicated agency Vietnam Chemicals Agency (Vinachemia) to overhaul the chemical management in Vietnam.
