NICNAS has prepared this guidance material for the chemical industry to help build its understanding of NICNAS requirements for compliance with the Act and its regulations. This publication will be updated regularly as the need arises to include new and revised aspects of NICNAS requirements.

The Act distinguishes the following compliance elements:

  1. New Industrial Chemicals

    1. General

    2. Exemptions

    3. Permits

    4. Self assessed chemicals

  2. Priority Existing Chemicals

  3. Assessed Chemicals

  4. Registration of Chemical Introducers

  5. Treaties
