Transcript of Copy of PICCS
In order to effectively manage the chemical substances:
Compile, maintain and update an inventory of chemical substances which are stored, imported, exported, used, processed, manufactured, or transported in the country. The list is known as the Philippine Inventory of Chemical and Chemical Substances (PICCS).
Screen the new chemical substances by seeking all available information to assess the potential risks posed by new chemical substances to the public health and to the environment. Pre-Manufacture Pre-Importation Notification (PMPIN)
Establish the Philippine Priority Chemical List (PCL) to ensure that importers and manufacturers of the chemicals in PCL abide by the requirements developed by DENR-EMB for these chemicals.
Issue Chemical Control Order (CCO) which limits, regulates and bans the use of chemical substances determined to pose unreasonable risk to public health and the environment. Philippine Inventory of Chemical and Chemical Substance PICCS Part of the responsibilities of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), through its Environmental Management Bureau (EMB), as regards the implementation of Republic Act No. 6969, also known as the “Toxic Substances and Hazardous and Nuclear Wastes Control Act of 1990”, is to compile and maintain an inventory of all chemicals and chemical substances in use throughout the country. This national inventory is called the Philippine Inventory of Chemicals and Chemical Substances or the PICCS. Philippine Inventory of Chemicals and Chemical Substances (PICCS) is a list of all existing chemicals and chemical substances used, sold, distributed, imported, processed, manufactured, stored, exported, treated or transported in the Philippines. The chemicals and chemical substances in the inventory were nominated by the industries themselves. What is PICCS? Chemicals and chemical substances not included in the PICCS cannot be manufactured, imported, distributed, or used unless they have undergone the Pre-Manufacture and Pre-Importation Notification (PMPIN) process. The first PICCS developed by the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) was released in 2000. It contains approximately 24,000 chemicals and chemical substances nominated in 1993 by chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors and users. PICCS is updated every 5 years. The latest edition of PICCS(2011) includes more than 44,000 chemical substances.
http://emb.gov.ph/internal/CasREgistry.aspx PICCS was developed to provide government, industry, and the public with a core inventory of all existing chemicals and chemical substances in the country. It serves as a guide for manufacturers and importers of chemicals. What is the rationale behind PICCS? Manufacturers and importers need not notify and secure clearance from DENR-EMB before they manufacture or import chemicals included in PICCS; provided that these chemicals are not in PCL and not are subject to CCOs. Chemicals and chemical substances not included in PICCS cannot be manufactured or imported unless the proponent follows the PMPIN notification assessment process. PICCS contains the following information: What information is included in PICCS? a. Chemical Name and its Chemical Abstract Service Number (CAS NO.)
- This is a unique identifying number assigned to a particular chemical or chemical substance adopted internationally. The CAS Registry Services, with the following address: P.O. Box 3343, 2540 Olentangy River Road, Columbus, Ohio 43210-0334, USA, is the agency responsible for assigning CAS numbers upon request and payment of fee. b. CAS Registry Index Names
- These are names assigned to chemicals in accordance with International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) nomenclature. c. Common name of the chemicals or chemical substances
- Other names or synonyms of the chemical may also be the trade name or commercial name. Updating of the PICCS is done semi-annually and includes all new chemicals that have been issued a PMPIN Clearance Certificate. PICCS updating All these new chemicals are submitted for verification of their CAS Registry Name and CAS Registry No. with the Chemical Abstract Service in the USA. Any correction is consulted with the notifier of the chemical. Non-chemical substances
Naturally occurring substances
Radioactive substances, pesticides, drugs, foodstuffs, and consumer products that are regulated by other laws in the Philippines
By-products Exemption to PICCS Pre – Manufacture Pre- Importation Notification PMPIN New chemical substance is defined as any chemical that is not included in PICCS. Pre-Manufacturing And Pre-Importation Notification (PMPIN) is to screen harmful substances before they enter Philippine’s commerce. Its main objective is to ensure that new chemicals that would pose an unreasonable risk to human health and the new environment either be denied to be manufactured or imported into the country, or be placed under control and restriction to limit potential releases. Manufacturers and importers (proponents) of a new chemical are required to notify DENR-EMB of their intent to manufacture or import the new chemical not sooner than 180 days and not later than 90 days. Together with this notification, the proponent submits the appropriate PMPIN forms. There are two kinds PMPIN forms for notification. These are:
PMPIN Detailed Form: used when the manufacturer or importer cannot adequately document the safety of the new chemical or when DENR-EMB determines that the information submitted does not contain sufficient documentation to enable DENR-EMB to determine the safety of the new chemical. Once a new chemical has been assessed and approved by DENR-EMB for import and manufacture, the proponent is granted a clearance by DENR-EMB to import and manufacture the new chemical. The proponent is also required to submit a Notice of Commencement to Import or Manufacture Form. Only after submission of this form will the new chemical be added to PICCS. The new chemical may be added to the PICCS public version or the PICCS confidential version depending whether when CBI is requested by the proponent in the Notice of Commencement.
Only premises that are registered to manufacture in or licensed to import into the Philippines will be allowed to submit PMPIN forms to EMB:
a. PMPIN abbreviated form is used if the chemical is already in use in other countries that have a similar review process with no regulations or restrictions imposed on it, and when enough documentations are submitted to positively demonstrate the safety of the chemical.
b. PMPIN detailed form is used if the proponent cannot provide documents that the chemical is already being used in an industrialized country with no control, or document the safety of the chemical. Requirements in Compliance with the PMPIN rules MSDS in ISO 11014 or in GHS format.
Notification must be filed not sooner than 180 days and not later than 90 days before date of manufacture or importation. Notification fees of P900.00 must accompany a PMPIN abbreviated form and P1, 800.00 must accompany a PMPIN detailed form.
Once a chemical is listed in PICCS, it may be manufactured or imported with no control provided it is not included in PCL or not subject to CCO.
The manufacturer or importer will bear the cost of all documentation and tests that EMB may require on the new chemical.
After a clearance to import or manufacture is issued by EMB, the proponent must submit a Notice of Commencement to EMB.
The proponent is responsible for the accuracy of all data, information, and documents submitted to EMB. Priority Chemical List PCL Priority Chemical List is a list of existing and new chemicals that DENR-EMB has determined to a potentially pose unreasonable risk to public health, workplace, and the environment. Among the chemicals in PCL, DENR-EMB determines which chemicals should be regulated. What is PCL? In addition, DENR-EMB imposes special reporting requirements that apply only to chemicals included in PCL. This is an essential aspect of the PCL process since these reports will enable DENR-EMB to obtain the necessary information concerning the priority chemicals and their uses. Such information will assist DENR-EMB in making informed decisions on which chemicals should be regulated. Assessment of the potential hazards and risks posed by each chemical in PCL is not an easy process. It not only requires knowledge of the toxicity of a substance, but also other characteristics of a substance that may influence the severity and duration of adverse impacts. These include a chemical’s persistence and tendency to bioaccumulate through the food chain. The following criteria has been established by DENR-EMB for PCL based on the selection criteria and used in other industrial nations such as Australia, Japan, Canada and the United States. In addition, qualitative and quantitative information that is unique to the Philippines such as chemical’s use and management, production quantity, percentage of release, occupational exposure, disposal methods, and technical and economic feasibility of its regulation are considered: Persistence refers to the property of a substance whose half-life in water, sediment, soil, or air exceeds duration of fifty (50) days. Sludge may be used as a surrogate for sediment. Metals are considered to be persistent in all media. Toxicity refers to the quality of a substance which meets any of the following criteria:
Chronic or sub-lethal toxicity
Carcinogenicity Bioaccumulation potential is the measure of a substance’s ability to bioaccumulate in the food chain. Duly filled-up Application Form.

Processing Fee (P500.00/chemical) Chemical Control Order CCO Chemical Control Orders (CCOs) prohibit, limit, or regulate the use, manufacture, import, export, transport, processing, storage, possession, and wholesale of those priority chemicals that DENR-EMB determined to be regulated, phase-out, or banned because of the serious risks they pose to public health, workplace, and environment. What is CCO? At any one time, DENR-EMB may impose a regulation, a phase-out plan, or a ban on a chemical or chemical substance when it determines that such action is necessary. Chemicals and chemical substances that pose an unreasonable risk to public health or the environment are potentially subject to CCOs. Each year, after due consideration to industrial needs, the health and environment risks, the Philippine commitment to international and regional treaties and conventions, and DENR-EMB’s capabilities and resources to manage the controlled chemicals, DENR-EMB may determine what chemicals listed as priority (PCL) should be regulated, controlled, or phase out. The 48 priority chemicals making up the Philippines Priority Chemical List (PCL) have been further screened. Taking into account the current limitations for fully enforcing CCOs for a large number of chemicals and given the fact that the industries in the Philippines will require time to introduce self-monitoring and to respond to new regulations, EMB during the period of 1995 to 1998 will issue CCOs only on a limited number of chemicals. By 1998, EMB will review the priority chemicals list and make a determination regarding issuance of control over additional priority chemicals. a. Gradual phase out of import and manufacturing
