comprehensive, and reliable information on chemical substances and
preparations is crucial in all areas of environmental protection and
for averting danger. The ChemInfo database has been created and run for
providing such information in a uniform manner, primarily to public
authorities, but in recent years partly to the general public as well.
ChemInfo is a nationwide project and operated conjointly by the German
Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear
Safety and the Environmental Ministries of the participating Federal
States of Germany (Länder).
The cooperation was established through an administrative agreement in 1994.
