List of Hazardous Substances Requiring the HS License

List of Hazardous Substances Requiring The Hazardous Substances Permit/License

Do you import, use or store chemicals in your organization either for  reselling to other company or you use them yourself in your organization operations?

And are you aware about what types of chemicals or rather substances are regulated under the
hazardous substances under the Environmental Protection Management Act.

And do you know that you require the hazardous substance license if you are to import,store or use the hazardous substances in your organization?

Not to worry. Here are a list of controlled hazardous substances regulated under the  Environmental Protection Management Act which requires the HS license to help you understand what are the substances regulated under this act
