The Philippines (TSHWCA)

In the Philippines, chemical control is covered by the 1990 Toxic Substances and Hazardous Wastes Control Act (TSHWCA), i.e. The Philippines Republic Act 6969, which covers import, manufacture, processing, handling, storage, transport, sale, distribution, use and disposal of chemical substances and mixtures.

However, chemicals controlled by other Philippine legislation, such as radiochemicals, pesticides, agricultural and veterinary products, pharmaceuticals and food additives, are not covered by TSHWCA. The Act is administered by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), using DENR Administrative Order No.29 which outlines the implementing rules and regulations.
