New Chemicals Notification Forms

New chemical notifications must be submitted using current forms.

From 1st July, 2011, NICNAS will not accept new chemical notifications that are submitted using out-of-date notification forms (i.e. forms developed for use prior to January 2011). To ensure that you are using the correct notification form, we recommend that you download the appropriate form each time you notify (i.e. do not complete/submit forms that have been previously downloaded and saved to your computer).

Question: How do I know if the notification form that I am using is out-of-date (and hence will not be accepted by NICNAS)?

Answer: All notification forms developed for use from January 2011 require the notifier to stipulate whether the chemical is an industrial nanomaterial under the NICNAS definition. If the notification form that you are using does not contain this, then it will not be accepted by NICNAS from 1st July, 2011.

To provide feedback on the new chemical notification forms and/or for assistance in completing the forms, please contact the NICNAS New Chemicals Program at newchems@nicnas.gov.au.
