Some regulatory changes from 23 November – see what's changed for categorisation and record-keeping obligations

Are you introducing chemicals under NICNAS exemptions?

There's less than a year to go before our transitional arrangements end. You can keep introducing chemicals under the following NICNAS exemptions until 31 August 2022: 

  • research and development – less than 100 kg
  • cosmetic use (no unreasonable risk) – less than 100 kg
  • non-cosmetic use (no unreasonable risk) – less than 100 kg
  • cosmetic use (non-hazardous) – less than 1%

After then, you'll need to categorise your introductions. It may take you some time to gather the information you need – so we recommending starting the categorisation process now.

Learn more about what you need to do if you're using these exemptions, and get answers to your frequently asked questions.
