The NICNAS Priority Existing Chemical (PEC) assessment report for dibutyl phthalate (DBP) is now available. DBP is a plasticiser used in the manufacture of a wide variety of items, including cosmetic products, children's toys and childcare articles. The PEC report recommends that the use of DBP in cosmetics be restricted through inclusion of DBP in Appendix C of the Poisons Standard (Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons (SUSMP)), but concludes that restrictions on the use of DBP in children’s toys and childcare articles are not warranted under the circumstances that DBP is used in Australia. More information is available in the November 2013 Gazette notice.
