High Volume Industrial Chemicals List (HVICL)

This chemical is introduced into Australia (manufactured or imported) in large quantities.  NICNAS has compiled a list of such industrial chemicals (the Australian HVICL), based on the information supplied by industry during 2001/2002 and 2006.  Only those chemicals with a combined import and manufacturing quantity of 1000 tonnes or more have been included in the Australian HVICL.  This chemical is listed on the 2002 and 2006 Australian HVICL.



NICNAS endeavours to maintain the AICS with important regulatory and other information on listed chemicals, however, the information provided may not be exhaustive. The absence of additional information against an AICS listing does not indicate that there are no regulatory controls or hazards associated with the listed chemical.
