NICNAS Case Studies Provide Guide to Categorizing Chemicals under New Scheme



On May 16, 2018, the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) announced the availability of six case studies intended to help stakeholders understand how the categorization process for new industrial chemicals will work under the new Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS).  The case studies cover typical scenarios for introducing cosmetic and non-cosmetic new chemicals, and show how introducers would categorize chemicals as exempted or reported under the new scheme.  The case studies include checklists of the information needed for categorization; a summary and walk through of the steps to categorize the chemical introduction; and an explanation of what happens next and a brief comparison for the same introduction under the current legislation.
