Given the frequent incidents of social concerns about chemical substances both at home and abroad in recent years, and to further manage chemicals at source, the Environmental Protection Agency included the “Concerned Chemical Substance” to the amendment of the “Toxic and Concerned Chemical Substances Control Act” in 2019, to expand the chemical substance control, implement the control management, and control the substance flow.
This project introduced the label technology, established the operating record of the cloud inspection and management mechanism, for implementing the chemical substances management and flow tracking, and established the material management mode for the response system of hazardous chemicals disasters, to enhance the material equipment management and the efficiency of response and dispatch. Meanwhile, the function of the disaster prevention map system was optimized, and the quality and applicability of data were strengthened.
In the chemical substances management and the operation of tracking flow direction, the “Permit (Approval) and Inspection Mechanism” and the “Cloud System of Operating Record Sheet” for toxic and concerned chemical substances were established, and 2 suppliers and their downstream operators were guided for data inspection and declaration, obtaining 2,895 operating records in total. Furthermore, the “Inspection Mode of Chemical Substance Transaction Management” was built, the demonstration supply chain of N2O and CH2Cl2 was completed, and a total of 395 substance tags and 42 operating records were established. In the meantime, aiming at laboratories in colleges and universities, the “Fireproof Smart Locker” was proposed, to strengthen the management plan by applying the tracking technology.
In the material management operation of the response system of hazardous chemical material disasters, the “Material Management System of the Response System of Hazardous Chemical Material Disasters” was established, 1 demonstration operation of material management was completed, and a total of 886 material tags and 53 operating records were set up. These results were transferred to the “Toxic Chemical Disaster Management Information System”, and the draft of material management for the response system of hazardous chemical material disasters was proposed.
In the process of optimizing the disaster prevention map system, the spatial database of the nationwide administrative region and the “Geographical Coordinate Inspection System” was set up, for the “ChemiCloud” to import the operator’s spatial attribute data, to inspect and correct coordinates. Besides, the drawing functions of the “Risk Prevention and Response Map” were expanded.
