Notice 3

NOTICE 1 OF AMENDMENTS TO THE
AUSTRALIAN INVENTORY OF CHEMICAL SUBSTANCES

Notice is given in accordance with section 20 of the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act 1989 (the Act) that the Director intends to amend the Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances (AICS) as indicated in the tables below.

 

Based on evidence from the original nominators, ketone, methyl 2,6,10-trimethyl-2,5,9-cyclododecatrien-1-yl, (CAS RN 28371-99-5) was incorrectly nominated during the AICS compilation phase. NICNAS agrees with the evidence provided by the manufacturer that the name of the chemical that was nominated should have been acetic acid, anhydride, reaction products with 1,5,10-trimethyl-1,5,9-cyclododecatriene (CAS RN 144020-22-4).

 

The Director has therefore added acetic acid, anhydride, reaction products with 1,5,10-trimethyl-1,5,9-cyclododecatriene (CAS RN 144020-22-4) to the AICS, and intends to delete

Under Section 20AA  of the Act (Chemicals wrongly included in the Inventory) a person may give a written statement to the Director with 3 months of this notice giving reason why the chemical should not be removed. Section 20AA of the Act states that,


 (4)    If the Director receives a statement from a person giving reasons why the chemical should not be removed, the Director must reconsider the proposed removal in the light of the statement.

 

(5)     If the Director accepts the reasons why the chemical should not be removed, the Director must:

(a)     leave the chemical, and any particulars in respect of the chemical, in the
Inventory; and

(b)     publish a notice in the Chemical Gazette that the chemical is not going to be removed; and
(c)     give a copy of the notice to the person who gave the statement.

 

(6)     If the Director rejects the reasons why the chemical should not be removed, the Director must:

(a)     give the person who made the statement notice of the decision to reject the reasons; but
(b)     not remove the chemical, or any particulars in respect of the chemical, until 28 days after the date of the giving of the notice or, if the person
applies to the Tribunal for review of the decision, until the review has been finalised.
