According to the recent changes in Japan”s regulatory affairs act, the Chemical Substances Control Law (CSCL), Japanese companies that deal new chemicals in small quantities (that is, less than a ton per year) must submit an application for their new substances before manufacturing and/or importing. The National Institute of Technology and Evaluation (NITE) rolled out their MOL file creation system on 14th of September, 2018. This system is used with ChemAxon”s online chemical editor, Marvin JS implemented.
