Import of chemicals
All purchases of chemicals must be done in accordance with current agreements. The agreements can be found in the contracts database.
If the University, for valid reasons, has to purchase hazardous chemicals outside of the agreement, the university shall avoid importing chemicals from non-EU/EEA countries. This is to prevent the university from becoming an importer. Hazardous chemicals are those chemicals which are classified as hazardous according to CLP legislation. Under the legislation, the university in the role of importer must, among other things, produce a safety data sheet and report data to the European Chemicals Agency ECHA.
