The KemiDigi project brings chemical data together in one service

KemiDigi is a national chemical information resource and service which pulls together national chemical data. KemiDigi is the Government’s key project and its aim is to create a streamlined electronic service for companies managing their reporting obligations related to chemicals.

The core of KemiDigi comprises

  • a chemical register of the dangerous chemicals on the market;
  • a substance register of substances and the groups comprising the substances;
  • lists of chemicals by companies, which utilise information from the chemical and substance registers.

Current issues

KemiDigi is now live

Companies use KemiDigi to deliver the authorities the following information:

1. Chemical data

Submission of chemical notifications to the Product Register through KemiDigi started on 4 February 2019. Chemical notifications are now only accepted through KemiDigi. Notifications can no longer be submitted to the Product Register by email. Notifications previously submitted by companies have been transferred to KemiDigi and all valid notifications are available to companies in the service.

The collection of quantitative information related to chemical notices for the year 2018 will be implemented from 20 May 2019. The quantity report must be published in KemiDigi by 20 September 2019. Instructions relating to quantitative information can be found at the bottom of this page as well as in the instructions on the front page of the KemiDigi system.

2. Lists of chemicals

The list of chemicals function was made available to companies on 6 May 2019. Companies can use the service to compile their lists of chemicals. The instructions for the technical use of the list of chemicals function can be found at the bottom of this page. Instructions on the use of chemical lists by authorities that utilise the lists will be made available later this year. The environmental authority and Tukes will publish their own instructions on chemical lists.

The list of chemicals held by Tukes for supervision in accordance with the Act on the Safe Handling and Storage of Dangerous Chemicals and Explosives was transferred to KemiDigi in the early part of the year. They form the basis for the lists of chemicals in KemiDigi, when companies log into KemiDigi for the first time.

KemiDigi training

A video recording of a training seminar aimed at companies that submit chemical notifications is now available at http://www.mediaserver.fi/live/tukes.

The training seminar shown in the video is intended for companies that place chemicals on the market (e.g. importers and manufacturers) and are obliged to notify information on chemicals to Tukes in accordance with the Decree of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health on Submitting Information Concerning Chemicals (553/2008). The video is in Finnish.

Training on the list of chemicals function will be arranged in autumn 2019.

KemiDigi – REST interface

Delivering chemical notifications to KemiDigi will soon also be possible via the REST interface. By using KemiDigi’s REST interface, a company can integrate its own system intended for the management of chemical data into KemiDigi. This allows for the automated delivery of chemical notifications.

KemiDigi’s REST interface is already available for demo use. You can request information on this trial use via email from kemidigi (at) tukes.fi.

Suomi.fi

Companies can start the use of KemiDigi by implementing Suomi.fi identification and authorisation. You can log in KemiDigi, if you are a signatory of your company. If you are not a signatory of your company with an entry in the Trade Register and do not have the right to represent the company alone, the company must first authorise you to act on its behalf in KemiDigi. Authorisation is performed by granting you the mandate to manage chemical data matters (subject category of transacting with the authorities) in the Suomi.fi service. More detailed instructions for providing authorisations can be found in the Suomi.fi service instructions.
