In recent years, we have gained valuable experience in notification of new chemicals in Australia. The notification process according to the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act 1989 (Compilation No. 38, dated 1 July 2017) is fairly market friendly, as various guidance documents are provided and direct communication with the responsible agency is possible. Still, there are a number of complex requirements and strategic considerations one needs to be aware of when registering new chemicals in Australia. This starts with selecting the right category for new chemical assessment, i.e. permit or certificate assessment, and ends with the choice of the appropriate notification strategy (e.g. limited or standard). SCC helps you in choosing an effective strategy, best fitted to your needs, and obtaining a successful notification in Australia.
