This global database with evaluated information on chemicals has been developed as a collaboration between the World Health Organization, on behalf of the International Programme on Chemical Safety, and the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety.

INCHEM was developed in the IOMC Context. The contents do not necessarily reflect the views or stated policies of individual IOMC Participating Organizations.

The Inter-Organisation Programme for the Sound Management of Chemicals (IOMC) was established in 1995 following recommendations made by the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development to strengthen co-operation and increase international co-ordination in the field of chemical safety. The participating organisations are FAO, ILO, UNDP, UNEP, UNIDO, UNITAR, WHO, World Bank and OECD. The purpose of the IOMC is to promote co-ordination of the policies and activities pursued by the Participating Organisations, jointly or separately, to achieve the sound management of chemicals in relation to human health and the environment.

The designations employed and the presentation of the material in this work do not imply the expression of any opinion whatsoever on the part of the World Health Organization on behalf of the International Programme on Chemical Safety and the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety concerning the legal status of any country, territory, city or area or of its authorities, or concerning the delimitation of its frontiers and boundaries.

The World Health Organization on behalf of the International Programme on Chemical Safety and the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety do not warrant that the information contained in the IPCS INCHEM is complete and correct and shall not be liable whatsoever for any damages incurred as a result of its use.
