Draft evaluations - have your say - closes 17 June 2022

What is this about?

We have published 27 draft evaluation statements on 157 industrial chemicals that:

  • we identified as having the potential to pose a risk to human health and/or the environment
  • are unlikely to require further regulation in Australia to manage human health risks

These evaluations are listed in our Rolling Action Plan and are part of the targets set in our evaluations roadmap. Please note, we have made some changes to the RAP.

We welcome your comments on any of these draft evaluations.

Note: The list of draft evaluations provides an overview of the evaluations including the outcome. EVA00049 has an outcome relating to changes to the Inventory.
