GHS Report

In Indonesia the so-called negative list approach is employed for chemicals control. Hazardous and toxic chemicals are regulated by making lists of specified hazardous chemicals to be controlled. Indonesia does not have a risk-based chemical control approach to regulated chemicals based on assessment results of their hazards and exposure as is employed in for example EU-REACH. However, the Indonesia government is working to improve the current method of chemical control. Indonesian government published the Chemical Substance Bill that aims to regulate from import/export, production, transportation, usage to disposal in 2012. As of 2018 the Bill has not been promulgated but is still under consideration.
