Cost Recovery

It is government policy that all NICNAS activities are cost recovered in accordance with the Australian Cost Recovery Guidelines.

Cost Recovery arrangements for activities undertaken by NICNAS to regulate industrial chemicals were introduced with the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act 1989. Fees and charges were initially established to recover 50% of NICNAS's costs. This was reviewed in 1997 when the then Minister approved changes to move NICNAS to full cost recovery of regulatory activities from industry.

Fees and Charges

Industry cost recovery occurs through two funding streams:
