1. Purpose of reporting

With regard to the data obtained under the reporting, notification and authorisation requirements, the 1999 Dispatch on the Chemicals Act7 states: “The product register compiled on the basis of this information may be used not only for medical purposes, but also for purposes of enforcement, primarily in the area of market surveillance.” Also mentioned is the use of such data in particular for risk assessments and for prioritisation. In addition, under Art. 18 para. 3 Chemicals Act (ChemA; SR 813.1), reporting requirements may also be specified so as to facilitate the identification of risks and prevention.
