Hazardous chemical database updated to improve safety

Another 755 chemicals have been added to the Hazardous Chemical Information System.

As well as these additions, amendments were made to more than 600 currently listed chemicals.

The Hazardous Chemical Information System provides information on chemicals that have been classified in accordance with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals.

It is useful for manufacturers, importers, suppliers and end users.

Details can be found on the new and amended chemicals by using the advanced search feature to show ‘chemicals revised this week’.

The update incorporates classification information published under the Inventory Multi-tiered Assessment and Prioritisation program run by the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme.
