Chemical risk assessment

Chemicals can carry out important functions in a wide range of products and goods, but they can also pose a direct health risk on the user.

Increased knowledge about chemicals is the first step for good opportunities to choose not to include, or to select less, dangerous substances.


The fact that products contain chemicals with different hazard levels has been noted more and more during recent years. The main problem in relation to chemicals in products is the diffuse spread of the substances that occur when chemicals are released from the product during manufacture, use, waste management and any recycling. In order for all goods to be handled safely during use and recycling it is important to obtain better information on the chemical content.
