The Offshore Chemical Notification Scheme (OCNS) manages chemical use and discharge by the UK offshore petroleum industry.
The substitution of harmful chemicals is an important part of the Harmonised Mandatory Control Scheme (HMCS). The UK is obliged to implement the policy to replace chemical substances identified as candidates for substitution. Products containing substitutable chemical substances are identified by the presence of a substitution warning placed on the product template.
