The Department of Environment (DOE)
in the Ministry of Environment and Water, Malaysia launched a new website in
April 2021. This new website called ‘MyEHS’was launched after the department closed its Environmental
Hazardous Substance Notification and Registration (EHSNR) system.
MyEHS allows the registration of
Environmentally Hazardous Substances (EHS) and the search of registered
substances list, usage manuals, FAQs, among others. It will also establish a
Malaysian reference list where information will be available on the substances
notified to DOE, substance usage in Malaysia, hazard classification, and the
accumulated quantity in the Malaysian market. All these information are
available to the public. The system was formerly operating as ‘EHSNR’ and since
2009, chemical manufacturers/importers have registered their substances
voluntarily on the website. 596 chemicals have been registered and 1,365
companies are recognized for EHS notification.
The objective of this system is to
provide necessary information on EHS while ensuring that
manufacturers/importers notify their substances. All these are aimed at
protecting human health and the environment. Notifiers are expected to notify
on MyEHS before or on 31st January of the following year.
