Requests for more information

Last update 17 August 2017

In some cases, the NICNAS assessor may need to clarify information or ask you for additional information (for example, to resolve ambiguities or inconsistencies in data, interpret unqualified test data or to properly assess a chemical).

In these cases, we will write to you with the details and timeline for the required information.

Examples of specific test data or information you may be asked for:

  • chronic toxicity test results where long-term exposure to the chemical is likely and short-term toxicity tests indicate possible longer-term effects
  • information to satisfy the requirements of the Stockholm Convention on persistent organic pollutants (for chemicals that may be persistent in the environment and/or bioaccumulative
  • extra details for chemicals that are industrial nanomaterials.
