The production of chemicals has become one of the largest economic sectors and most popular in the world due their broad use in the industrial, oil and other sectors, and the dependence of modern society on them in various manufacturing processes and uses. However, it is necessary to balance the recognition of the essential role played by these resources and their contribution to development, the provision of needs and the raising of the standard of living And recognizing their potential harmful effects on the environment and human health. By virtue of the multiplicity of those effects and their consequences, sound management of chemicals is a key component of sustainable development, with the production and use of chemicals in ways that reduce their extreme harmful effects on humans and the environment and emphasize their significant role on economic growth promotion.
Department of Chemical Substances was established according to the Royal Decree No. 46/95 (article.6), with the objective of sound management of chemicals, reducing their risks, exchanging knowledge and information, following the best environmental practices and using available techniques, improve national capacities and technical cooperation, reduce illegal international trade, and reduce the accumulation of hazardous waste, which contributes to reducing environmental incidents that may result from them.
In order to achieve sound management of chemicals, the department adopted comprehensive approach aimed at reducing risks and preventing adverse impacts throughout all stages of the chemical life cycle, from production or import through processing, storage, transportation, distribution, use and disposal. With chemicals touching nearly every aspect of our lives, achieving the sound management of chemicals is a process which must involve a wide range of actors nationally and regionally including government, industry, the agricultural sector, workers, research institutes and academia, public interest groups and individual citizens.
Sound management of chemicals aims to protect human health and avoid adverse impacts on the environment. This can be accomplished through:
