An obligation to provide specific information to AICIS will be added to the terms of listing for benzene, 1-chloro-4-(trifluoromethyl)- (CAS No. 98-56-6) on the Australian Inventory of Industrial Chemicals (Inventory). 

Reason for varying the Inventory listing

For the reasons set out in page 8/paragraph 6 of the evaluation statement, the Executive Director of AICIS concluded that a variation to the Inventory terms of listing of the chemical is necessary to manage the risks from the introduction of this chemical.
