Updates made to the hazardous substances and chemicals lists

Safe Work Australia has updated the Hazardous Substance Information System (HSIS) and the GHS Hazardous Chemical Information List (HCIL) to incorporate assessments made by the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS). These changes represent human health assessments made as part of tranches one through seven of the Inventory Multi-tiered Assessment and Prioritisation (IMAP) framework. This update includes approximately 300 new entries and approximately 130 amendments to existing entries for both datasets. Complete information about the updates to HSIS and HCIL can be found on the HSIS website.
