The Philippines issued a clarification on section II, the scope of Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Administrative Order 2007-23. Pursuant to the guidance, all distributors and users of chemical substances listed in the Priority Chemicals List (PCL), including importers and manufacturers, are required to comply with the applicable provisions of DENR Administrative Order No. 2007-23 including Section III, 3.1 as distributors or 3.2 as users. This Order took effect fifteen days after publication.
The DENR also issued a second Order which repeals the prohibition on EMB MC 2016-011, thereby allowing the issuance of the PICCS Certificate. Accordingly, the Order sets forth the guidelines on the validation and issuance of PICCS Certification.
Finally, the DENR released the list of chemicals to be included in the Philippine Inventory of Chemicals and Chemical Substance. The Order took effect immediately.
