Secondary Notifications assessed by the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme

In the October edition of the Chemical Gazette, the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) published a list of chemical that require secondary notifications and also a list of chemicals that did require secondary notification but no longer do so. Under section 71(1) and 71(2) of the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act 1989, as amended, the Director of NICNAS is required to maintain a list of chemicals requiring secondary notification, and a list of chemicals that required, but no longer require, secondary notification. Section 71(3) requires these lists to be published once a year. The chemicals on these lists were originally notified and assessed under either section 23 or 57 of the Act. Because new information became available that potentially impacted on the original assessment, these chemicals subsequently required secondary notification under section 65(1) or 64(2) of the Act. This enabled the original assessment to be updated.
