5 ASEAN Chemical Industries Council (ACIC) The chemical industry is a fundamental industry producing both raw materials for other industries, as well as end products. The ASEAN Chemical Industries Council (ACIC) is a regional grouping in ASEAN, established with the view to advance a faster and effective implementation of projects for industrial complementation under the Working group of Industrial Complementation of the ASEAN Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ASEAN-CCI). It was formed in April 1977 and with a current membership of six countries, comprising the respective national chemical industry associations/ organizations from Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.

6 ASEAN Chemical Industries Council (ACIC) The chairmanship of ACIC is based on a rotating basis (alphabetical order). The affairs of the ACIC are governed and administered by the ACIC Board of Directors’ which meets annually to promote cooperation, as well as to discuss and resolve issues affecting the ASEAN Chemical industry. Thailand is anticipated to hold the ACIC chairmanship in 2007.

11 ASEAN Chemical Industries Council (ACIC) APEC (The Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation) and APEC Chemical Dialogue APEC (The Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation) and APEC Chemical Dialogue GLOBALLY HARMONIZED SYSTEM (GHS) IMPLEMENTATION AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE SEMINAR ON GLOBALLY HARMONIZED SYSTEM (GHS) IMPLEMENTATION AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE, THAILAND, SEPTEMBER 2006 Purpose; Purpose; To enhance the GHS technical tools following up implementation, and establishment of sustainable development framework and information network on GHS To enhance the GHS technical tools following up implementation, and establishment of sustainable development framework and information network on GHS

12 ASEAN Chemical Industries Council (ACIC) APEC (The Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation) and APEC Chemical Dialogue APEC (The Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation) and APEC Chemical Dialogue GLOBALLY HARMONIZED SYSTEM (GHS) IMPLEMENTATION AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE SEMINAR ON GLOBALLY HARMONIZED SYSTEM (GHS) IMPLEMENTATION AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE, THAILAND, SEPTEMBER 2006 Conclusion; Conclusion; 1. The participants gained overview knowledge and the work plan of future GHS chemical classification and its implementation, together with information about UNITAR’s project on implementation and technical assistance on GHS.

13 ASEAN Chemical Industries Council (ACIC) 2. By the time the seminar was organized in September 2006, it was obvious to all participants that most APEC economies would miss the target of GHS implementation by It seemed that many would also miss the global target of having GHS fully operational by 2008, as set by WSSD and ECOSOC, unless additional efforts were made to accelerate the process in APEC. 3. To facilitate a smooth transition to the new GHS system and to have it fully operational by 2008, it was recommended that earlier GHS implementation should not face any barrier to trade. Instead, a dual system (GHS and Non-GHS) should be acceptable during the transitional period. This issue, together with the issue of incentives for earlier implementation, should be ruled by APEC CD SG.

14 ASEAN Chemical Industries Council (ACIC) 4. In support of the APEC Collaboration System, and to facilitate trade on chemicals and chemical products, it was recommended that all APEC member economies establish a website on GHS implementation in their respective economies. The website, bilingual between English and the national language. 5. While labeling and statements for very small packages were regarded as GHS special cases, and while some APEC member economies already had provisions for special situations in their regulations, it was agreed that there was an opportunity for standardization under GHS. It was also recommended that APEC CD should set up a working group to look into this issue from APEC’s perspective.

15 ASEAN Chemical Industries Council (ACIC) 6. In designing hazard communication tools, it was agreed that the protection of CBI was needed, providing that such protection did not compromise the health and safety of workers or consumers or the protection of the environment. It was also agreed that, on the issue of CBI, clear guidelines from the government should be made available. 7. As regards GHS implementation, the progress made so far in Japan was commendable. Besides, the methods used and steps taken by Japan were considered the best practice available from which other APEC economies could learn and apply.
