EXTENSION OF DEADLINE: VOLUNTARY CALL FOR INFORMATION – DOWNSTREAM USERS OF 40 INDUSTRIAL CHEMICALS OF POTENTIAL SECURITY CONCERN EXTENDED TO 16 APRIL, 2012

 

The National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) published a voluntary call for information from introducers and users of certain chemicals which are of potential security concern in the Chemical Gazette of August 2011. The notice can be accessed at: http://www.nicnas.gov.au/Publications/Chemical_Gazette/
Chemical_Gazette_August_2011.asp

NICNAS is collating information on 40 chemicals on behalf of the Australian Government Attorney-General’s Department. The information will primarily be considered to inform risk assessments on these chemicals.
