Applications for the registration of chlorinating pool products that contain the active constituent:
calcium hypochlorite tablet or granule product to provide available 650 to 700 g/kg chlorine
lithium hypochlorite granule product to provide available 350 g/kg chlorine
sodium hypochlorite liquid to provide available 100 to 130 g/L chlorine
sodium dichloroisocyanurate granule product to provide available 500 to 630 g/kg chlorine
trichloroisocyanuric acid tablet product to provide 800 to 900 kg available chlorine
Should either be submitted as an:
Item 9 application, if you meet the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code (Listed Chemical Product – Home Swimming Pool and Spa Products) Standard 2014. An Item 9 application requires no reference product, must have an upper pack size limit of 25 kg or 25 L, and have identical label instructions to those contained in the Pool Standard. An Item 9 application has a 3-month timeframe with an application fee of $2,632.
Item 7 application, if you have a registered reference product where the formulation is the same or closely similar, with identical label instructions as the reference product. Additional pack sizes are permissible for these types of pool products as no data are required. Item 7 applications have a 3-month timeframe, with an application fee of $2,632.
Item 8 application, if all aspects of the product are the same as the reference product. Formulation, manufacturing site, pack sizes and label instructions are the same. Item 8 applications have a 3-month timeframe, with an application fee of $2,632.
Applications submitted as an Item 10 with a 2-month timeframe will be re-categorised as appropriate. Item 10 applications are defined in schedule 6 of the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Regulations as an application for registration for all situations other than those described in Items 1 to 9. Therefore, if the Item 10 application with no modules requires no technical assessment for chemistry or efficacy, the application falls within the definition of another Item (e.g. Item 7) and these applications will be re-categorised.
Note, applications for Items 7, 8 and 9 allow for you to pay the full fee at the time of submission and avoid the need for invoices to be issued during preliminary assessment.
