What is a specific information requirement?
A specific information requirement means you have an obligation to tell us information about your introduction. We add this requirement after we assess a chemical as it can help us manage potential risks.
You must also tell us about any new hazard information if you're introducing a chemical we've already assessed or evaluated. You must do this within 20 working days from when you become aware of the new hazard.
- any new hazards that we haven't identified from the introduction or use of the chemical in our most recent assessment or evaluation statement
- if there's an increase in the severity of a hazard we've already identified in our most recent assessment or evaluation statement
Your information will help us decide if we need to reassess a chemical. Any reassessments we do are called an 'evaluation'. There is no fee for an evaluation.
How do I report my information?
Can I still introduce the chemical if I've met all other listing terms/obligations?
Yes you can import or manufacture the chemical. We'll review the information you've given us and will contact you if we need further information.
