On-Site Inspection


On-Site Inspection for Manufacturing Firms according to Enforcement of Laws by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry

Observation of international verification activities at the factories and on-site inspection at the licensed manufacturer and licensed user, based on the Act on Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the Regulation of Specific Chemicals (CW law).

Some chemicals, used as raw materials for many products in many factories, are regulated by the Chemical Weapons Convention (Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on their Destruction).

Verification is implemented by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), an international organization, for factories that produce or use such chemicals.

Regarding verification, as the main member of the Inspected State Party, NITE (National Institute of Technology and Evaluation) observes and supports verification activities that should be implemented under the regulations of the Chemical Weapons Convention.

In addition, based on the CW law, NITE performs on-site inspections of the licensed manufacturer and licensed user handling specific chemicals regulated by the CW law for use in analysis and research.

On-Site Inspection for the Act on the Evaluation of Chemical Substances and Regulation of Their Manufacture, etc. (Chemical Substances Control Law(CSCL))

The Chemical Substances Control Law allows to skip notification and review by making an application in advance and having its contents confirmed if it is determined that there is no risk of environmental pollution in manufacturing, etc. of any new chemical substances.

For example, manufacturing and import of such substances to be used as intermediates correspond to such cases.

NITE performs confirmation of the documents submitted in such applications and on-site inspections to confirm the application contents of business operators who performs manufacturing, etc.
