Introducing NICNAS

We wanted to share with you today an informative website that provides the key for importing chemicals – NICNAS.  This interesting acronym name stands for “National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme”.

Industrial chemicals are a big part of our life, the NICNAS website assists those in the chemical industry such as importers, exports, manufacturers and researchers.

NICNAS aids in the protection of the Australian people and the environment by assessing the risks of industrial chemicals and providing information to promote safe use. Some of the areas that NICNAS covers are as follows:

  • Notification and assessment of new chemicals
  • Assessment of existing chemicals
  • International treaties
  • Regulatory strategy and reform
  • Compliance and enforcement
  • Education and outreach
