Secondary notification assessment: D-glucitol, 1-deoxy-1-(methylamino)-, N-C10-16 acyl derivatives for public comment

Last update 4 April 2017

NICNAS has conducted a secondary notification assessment of D-glucitol, 1-deoxy-1-(methylamino)-, N-C10-16 acyl derivatives (CAS No. 173145-38-5) under the Commonwealth Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act 1989 (ICNA Act), as amended.

We declared a secondary notification requirement in the August 2016 Chemical Gazette because of:

  • proposed reformulation in Australia
  • new uses in personal care and household cleaning products
  • proposed significant increases in import volume and
  • newly available toxicity studies.

The original assessment was for use in finished domestic dishwashing solutions without prior reformulation.
