Submitting information on chemicals

Enterprises or their representatives responsible for placing a chemical on the market or in use in Finland must submit a chemical notification. Such enterprise may be the manufacturer, importer or other operator. If you send the data from abroad, please indicate clearly for which Finnish company the chemicals are to be registered.


The information required in the notification is primarily the same as that provided in the safety data sheet. There is no compulsory form for the purpose, but the sample form available on our site can be used to provide the notification and to produce the safety data sheet.


The chemical notification must be made in Finnish or Swedish. Chemical notifications shall be e-mailed to:


Chemical notifications are filed in the Chemical Products Register used by the Finnish Poison Information Centre and various authorities. There is also a public version of the register which provides access to basic data about each chemical.
