Open for public comment: 17 chemical evaluations and 3 calls for information on hazard and use of chemicals. Closes 25 June 2021.

Call for information on chemicals unlikely to need further human health risk management controls

Closes 25 June 2021

We're seeking use and hazard information on chemicals that we believe are low concern and don't require further regulatory controls to manage risks to human health.

We've published these chemicals in our evaluation statement that is open for public comment (draft evaluation statement):

Use our form below to tell us 

  • If you have hazard information about any of these chemicals
  • If you or your business are using any of the chemicals in a use category that is higher than what we have described in our evaluation statement.

Voluntary call for information - closes 25 June 2021

Read the draft evaluation statement and go to the heading 'Supporting information'. Look at the column called 'highest use category (human health)'. Tell us if you're using one of these chemicals in a higher use category than the one described in this table.

Use categories in order of increasing exposure to human health (5 is highest, 1 is lowest)

1. Non-industrial (have only excluded uses – food, therapeutic, agricultural and veterinary)
2. Site limited (used in large chemical operations)
3. Commercial (used by small factories, scattered through the community, industrial cleaning, rare use by specialised hobbyist members of the public)
4. Domestic (in products generally available to the public, excluding cosmetics)
5. Cosmetic

Example: The highest use category for iron sulfide is 'commercial' which is number 3. If you're introducing or using iron sulfide in make-up or skincare products then your use is in the 'cosmetic' category which is 5. In the form below, let us know that you are using iron sulfide (CAS number 1317-37-9) in cosmetics.
