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

About the report
The secondary notification report is an evaluation of the relevant information on the potential human health and environmental risks that may be associated with exposure to the notified chemical.
Based on the assessment findings, NICNAS is recommending to Safe Work Australia that the notified chemical be classified and labelled according to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) as:
- serious damage to eyes and
- acute aquatic toxicity.
We are also recommending that the Delegate (and/or the Advisory Committee on Chemicals Scheduling) consider the notified chemical for listing on the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons (SUSMP).
