The Hon Fiona Nash, the (then) Assistant Minister for Health, launched the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) Reforms Implementation Plan at an industry roundtable held at Parliament House on 16 September 2015. The implementation plan outlines:
- opportunities for community and industry consultation;
- timing of legislation and IT system changes;
- proposed improvements to NICNAS’s registration and payments processes;
- process for developing new procedures and guidance.
NICNAS is running consultation workshops in Sydney and Melbourne during November/December 2015 to discuss issues raised in a consultation paper. Additional workshops in other capital cities will be dependent on the level of interest. A copy of the consultation paper is available at: http://www.nicnas.gov.au/about-nicnas/nicnas-reforms/implementation-of-the-reforms/plan.
