Processing reports on breaches of law

The Chemical Inspection Service regularly receives enquiries from enterprises, individuals, consumer organisations and other authorities, etc. on suspected violations of the chemicals legislation. Our case-handling may, depending on the violation, mean that we make an assessment of the enterprise's documentation for the product, an analysis of the product, or a combination of these control forms. In some cases we have to contact the authorities in other EU member states in order to compile the necessary documentation from manufacturers and importers in these countries.
