Training and Outreach Sessions—Nationwide

NICNAS's preferred approach to ensuring compliance with our legislation is to work with industry—providing advice to help them understand their regulatory obligations and assistance in finding the most practical way to meet those obligations.

As part of our commitment to raising industry awareness, NICNAS will be conducting stakeholder training and awareness sessions in major capital cities and selected regional areas in coming months, and is seeking expressions of interest from those wishing to attend.

Please note, limited places are available; and these sessions are designed for new registrants and those unfamiliar with the NICNAS scheme. For stakeholders interested in updates to the scheme please consult: NICNAS current issues of our website; The NICNAS BulletinChemical Gazette and NICNAS Matters.

NICNAS training sessions are approximately 1.5 to 2 hours in duration, and there is no cost to attend. The topics discussed include: 

  1. Who is NICNAS?
  2. What does NICNAS do?
  3. Industrial chemical introducers' regulatory obligations
  4. NICNAS registration
  5. Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances (AICS)
  6. New industrial chemicals
  7. Existing chemicals
  8. Prior Informed Consent (PIC) chemicals
  9. Nanomaterials
  10. NICNAS compliance and enforcement functions
  11. Cosmetic  introducers' regulatory obligations
