"There is a growing interest and understanding of the potential exposure to chemicals contained in commonly used articles, such as personal computers, textiles, and toys. Information exchange is here one key factor to enabling actors to avoid hazardous chemicals and to manage risks. While an information system is not a substitute for other policy mechanisms to mitigate the harms from toxic substances in articles, it can be a powerful compliment. This report aim at contributing to the continued discussion on the various measures needed to achieve improved chemicals management at national, regional and global levels, by exploring the benefits from in-formation on chemicals in articles."
