NICNAS is currently implementing revised consultative arrangements following public consultation on the Proposal for Revised NICNAS Consultative Arrangements discussion paper in 2014.
Revised arrangements include the establishment of a Strategic Consultative Committee comprised of key industry and community-based organisation representatives that have been agreed by the Assistant Minister for Health for membership to the committee. It is intended that the committee will provide advice, information and recommendations to the Director of NICNAS on broad strategic issues related to efficiently and effectively achieving the objects of the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act 1989 (ICNA Act).
The new committee will replace the Community Engagement Forum (CEF) and the Industry Government Consultative Committee (IGCC).
Industry and community-based organisations have been invited to submit expressions of interest (until 5.00pm, Tuesday 17 March 2015) for membership of the new committee.Back to top
