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
The data entry support tool had been released in October 2015.
