The new ChemInfo web search has been developed to replace the most comprehensive data base regarding chemical substances in Germany, the Gemeinsamer Stoffdatenpool des Bundes und der Länder (GSBL). ChemInfo includes the products ChemInfo public, ChemInfo intern and the Gefahrstoffschnellauskunft (GSA). All data sets in ChemInfo have been validated by public authorities. With the new web search, new content is published on a daily basis.
A significant amount of information is accessible in the public version of ChemInfo without registration. You can start searching ChemInfo instantly via the search box above. Full access to ChemInfo and the Gefahrstoffschnellauskunft (GSA) including detailed information on hazardous substances can only be granted upon registration. Please note that ChemInfo and GSA are available for competent authorities in Germany only.
If you are already registered for GSBL, your account has been transferred to ChemInfo. You will receive an e-mail containing a link to set your new password. If you should not receive that e-mail, you can register via the button above alternatively.
