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; and
  • lists of chemicals by companies, which utilise information from the chemical and substance registers.

Users need Suomi.fi e-Authorisation to log in to the KemiDigi system.

Companies use KemiDigi to deliver authorities the following information:

1. Chemical data

Chemical notices can only be submitted using the KemiDigi service. Notices can no longer be submitted to the Product Register by email. Notices previously submitted by companies have been transferred to KemiDigi and all valid notices are available to companies in the service.

Quantitative information is collected annually on all the chemicals published in the KemiDigi system at the end of February.

Instructions relating to submitting chemical notices and 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

Companies can use the KemiDigi system 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 lists of chemicals.

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 have been moved to KemiDigi. 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.

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.
