2.7      Quality control in the Nordic product registers


Except for the systematic checking of classification information done by the Finnish product register, none of the Nordic product registers has systematic routines for checking whether the data submitted by the companies are correct. However, data on quantities may be checked in connection with the annual update in Norway and Sweden. For example, information may be checked if disagreements with previously reported figures are found. In Norway and Sweden, companies are also required to check various types of information when they submit their annual updates. In Norway, this applies to whether the danger categories recorded are correct, and whether the composition of the product has been changed.
