The 5th draft of the Chemical (Management and Safety) Rules (CMSR) was released by India on Aug. 24th, 2020. The draft, also known as India REACH, is expected to come into force on its publication date in the Official Gazette same as when it will be notified to the WTO this year. The CMSR will regulate Substances, Substances in Mixture, Substances in Articles, and Intermediates that are manufactured imported, or placed in the Indian Territory above 1 tonne per year.
Indian manufacturers, importers, and Authorized Representatives (AR) with an Indian legal entity can comply with the CMSR by submitting the notification, registration, and complying with other regulatory obligations. For foreign entities, it is important to appoint an AR to fulfil their compliance obligations.
In addition to the upcoming CMSR, enterprises shall also pay attention to their obligation on BIS Certification.
