US EPA Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) is a resource for learning about toxic chemical releases and pollution prevention activities reported by industrial and federal facilities. EPA’s TRI Program tracks the management of toxic chemicals that may pose a threat to human health and the environment. Facilities in certain industry sectors report annually the volume of toxic chemicals managed as waste--recycled, treated or burned for energy recovery--as well as disposed of or otherwise released into the environment.
K-PRTR K-PRTR delivers information about hazardous chemical releases and waste management activities of 39 industries to business operators and citizens. Chemical substances that are subject to the PRTR are divided into two groups: Group I Designated Chemical Substances and Group Ⅱ Designated Chemical Substances.
ECHA European Chemical Agency. This is unique source of information on the chemicals manufactured and imported in Europe. It covers their hazardous properties, classification and labelling, and information on how to use them safely. This information is a valuable resource for advancing the safe use of chemicals and for the replacement of the most hazardous ones by safer alternatives.
UNECE The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) provides "Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS)", addresses classification of chemicals by types of hazard and proposes harmonized hazard communication elements, including labels and safety data sheets. It aims at ensuring that information on physical hazards and toxicity from chemicals be available during the handling, transport and use.
ILO It is the International Chemical Safety Cards (ICSC) database of ILO. The cards are data sheets intended to provide essential safety and health information on chemicals in a clear and concise way. The primary aim of the cards is to promote the safe use of chemicals in the workplace. The main target users are workers and those responsible for occupational safety and health. The ICSC project is a common undertaking between the World Health Organization (WHO) and the ILO, with the cooperation of the European Commission.
OECD PRTR A Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) is a publicly accessible database or inventory of chemicals or pollutants released to air, water and soil and transferred off-site for treatment. It brings together information about which chemicals are being released, where, how much and by whom. OECD has developed three databases in order to encourage governments and other stakeholders to share PRTR data and technical information.
PRTR.net This website provides a global portal to PRTR information and activities from countries and organisations around the world. The website aims to assist countries in the development, implementation and improvement of PRTR programmes. It has been developed and is maintained by the OECD, in cooperation with the UNECE and the UNEP / GRID-Arendal.
E-PRTR The European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR) is the Europe-wide register that provides easily accessible key environmental data from industrial facilities in European Union Member States and in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Serbia and Switzerland. It contains data reported annually by more than 30,000 industrial facilities covering 65 economic activities across Europe.
NIOSH The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is a part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that is responsible for conducting research and making recommendations for the prevention of work-related injury and illness. The NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards (NPG) informs workers, employers, and occupational health professionals about workplace chemicals and their hazards. It gives general industrial hygiene information for hundreds of chemicals/classes. The NPG presents key data for chemicals or substance groupings (such as cyanides, fluorides, manganese compounds) that are found in workplaces.
