What’s chemSHERPA?

A scheme that facilitates sharing information on chemical substances in products
Information handling between supply-chain partners is essential for appropriate management of chemical substances in products (CiP), in order to continuously respond to expanding regulations. The chemSHERPA can be used as a common scheme for information handling across a supply chain.

Designed for steady & efficient information handling
Applicable to various products and industries. Throughout a supply chain, from up- to down-stream, This scheme allows organizations to handle the CiP information under a shared policy.

Toward a better information handling and chemical management in a supply chain
The chemSHERPA ensures "responsible information handling” that transfers composition information based on a common substance list, as well as compliance assessment information for articles, striving for a better CiP management in the future.

Starts operation in October 2015
Based on the second phase verification results, the data entry support tool will be finalized and formally released in October 2015.
