In Denmark, the chemicals sector is regulated by the Chemical Substances and Products Act. The scope of this Act extends to all chemical substances and products manufactured, imported or sold in Denmark.

Danish legislation imposes restrictions and prohibitions on specific substances. Furthermore these substances are covered by a variety of legislation at EU level.
