Rotterdam Convention — Annex III additions

The Department of the Environment and Energy is Australia's Designated National Authority and the lead Australian Government agency administering the Rotterdam Convention.

NICNAS implements the Rotterdam Convention domestically for some chemicals intended for industrial use. The following table lists chemicals that have been recently added to Annex III.

To reflect these additions, we've amended our Regulations (Regulation 11C), effective from 21 July 2018. This Regulation is made under section 106 of the ICNA Act.
