Permit categories

All permit categories under Part 3 of the Act will remain available for use by introducers of nano-forms of new chemicals. These changes to notification forms and information requirements may apply:

  • addition of a declaration by the notifier on the permit application form stating if the chemical is a nanomaterial
  • morespecific information (such as particle size, shape and other specific information on properties) may be required under some conditions (Specified conditions for requesting additional data requirements).

To complement these changes NICNAS may stipulate permit conditions for conventional chemicals where it can be reasonably assumed that a nano-form may be introduced.
