'Chemical Advisors' Go to Work

Keywords: Chemicals Government Policy / Systems 

On 22 April 2003, Japan's Ministry of the Environment started dispatching the 18 registered chemical advisors who had passed the ministry's requirements for this new advisory system.

The advisors are experts with backgrounds that enable them explain issues about the use and risks of chemicals, and provide objective information and advice without any bias for the opinions of citizens' groups, industry, or governments.

Anyone wishing to consult with one of these chemical advisors should contact the pilot project office, which will then select an advisor based on clients' requests. In order to improve the system, the office will ask clients to submit an evaluation report after the consultation.
