Industrial Chemical Submissions | De Groot Technical Services

The definition of an industrial chemical is broad but includes for example solvents, polymers, paints, cleaning products and adhesives.

Industrial chemicals require assessment under the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) with the purpose of protecting the health of the public, workers and the environment from the possible harmful effect of industrial chemicals. This is not a product registration process as such however the notification and assessment process requires the lodgement of specific information about the chemical.

NICNAS is a government body responsible for assessing industrial chemicals and their effect on health and environment before release to the market in Australia.

Business registration with NICNAS is seperate to the Notification / Listing of chemicals. All importers and/or manufacturers of industrial chemicals for commercial purposes must register (business registration) with NICNAS regardless of the quantity of industrial chemicals imported and/or manufactured in a registration year (1 September to 31 August).
