NICNAS continued to provide clear and accessible information on its website during 2006-07, to assist importers and manufacturers of industrial chemicals in Australia to fulfil their obligations, as well as the community to engage with NICNAS.


The newsletters, NICNAS matters and the eNewsletter are a central element to enhance access to chemical safety information by industry clients, the community, government agencies and the media. Printed copies of the January 2007 NICNAS matters were distributed to 5000 clients and stakeholders. NICNAS matters was also available on the website along with the eNewsletter.


NICNAS's communication staff maintained an effective media management strategy and assisted media to access scientific information on chemical matters. In addition, NICNAS handled specific media enquiries resulting in print and television coverage, as detailed at Appendix 12.
