Providing new information during assessment

Last update 19 June 2017

If new, relevant information on the chemical becomes available to you during assessment you must submit it to NICNAS.

This includes information such as:

  • references to the chemical in scientific literature
  • results of further testing carried out in Australia or in a foreign country
  • new information on occupational, public or environmental exposure
  • new uses of the chemical
  • information available from within the company or from the parent company or supplier
  • information presented at conferences
  • information from patent specifications.

This requirement means you are responsible for regularly monitoring scientific literature and other known information sources for additional details on the notified chemical.

Failure to provide such information during chemical assessment may lead NICNAS to suspend the assessment process until the new information is received.
