All Compliance guidance material was reviewed and updated in 2005-06 and placed on the NICNAS website.
The High Volume Industrial Chemicals List (HVICL), first published by NICNAS in July 2002, contains information about the volume of the chemicals manufactured or imported at high volumes in Australia , which industries introduce the chemicals, and general uses of the chemicals. NICNAS issued a call for information to industry to update the list.
In addition, guidance notes on reporting requirements for the Update to the HVICL were provided. The guidance document was published on the website and notices were published in NICNASs Chemical Gazette. The purpose of the guidance document was to explain the content and purpose of the report, who needs to submit a report and what information is exempt from reporting.
Updated guidance information on industry obligations under the Rotterdam Convention (see elsewhere in this report) was developed for publication on the NICNAS website.
