The Swedish Chemicals Agency (KemI) participates and contributes to work in progress in different international fields, such as:
- Support to the Swedish Government and participation in the development and implementation of international conventions and other agreements in the field of chemicals.
- Development co-operation within the framework of the agreement between KemI and the Swedish international development co-operation agency (Sida).
- Co-operation in international organisations.
- Nordic co-operation.
KemI's international activities are co-ordinated by the agency's International Secretariat. Directions for the international work are given in, for example, the Government Bill 'A strategy for a non-toxic environment' and in the appropriation directions for KemI.
