New chemical assessments

A new industrial chemical is an industrial chemical that is not listed on the Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances (AICS), or is a listed chemical subject to a condition of use.

Businesses introducing a new industrial chemical can choose from several notification and assessment categories. Read more in notify your chemical.

Where a notification is made under a certificate category, an assessment report is published containing a summary of health, safety and environmental matters considered in the assessment and such recommendations as may reasonably be made to ensure safe use of the chemical. These reports are listed below.

For more information about the assessment abbreviations read the explanatory notes.

Please note this section of the website is under development, with the remaining new chemical assessment reports published before July 2010 expected to be available soon.
