      In this paper a chemical substance reporting system is presented to enable industry to assess the impacts of increasing chemical regulations. Chemical regulations impose the need to monitor, control and restrict the use of hazardous substances. As chemical substances become more regulated, industry requires mechanisms to identify potential business continuity risks, posed by increased regulation. A chemical reporting system is one such mechanism that identifies chemical substances used on their (i) own, (ii) in mixtures, (iii) in materials, (iv) in internally defined articles (products) and (v) from articles (products) procured from the supply chain. The chemical reporting system will contrast product related information against chemical regulation substance lists, identifying the applicable reporting obligations and potential supply chain risks.
