Establishment of the Chemical Management System

In response to tightened laws and regulations related to chemical management, OCI introduced CMS (Chemical Management System) since June 2019 and have been operating it since. The CMS integrates all the systems involved in the purchase and management of a total of 15,500 chemicals by computerizing the entire process for each chemical, from purchase to use and disposal. In the past, the department in charge of purchasing chemicals was separate from the one in charge of managing them, making integrated chemical management difficult. However, the adoption of the CMS has enabled to purchase and manage chemicals simultaneously, improving both safety and efficiency. In the future, OCI will preemptively respond to laws and regulations related to chemicals through our CMS.
