Australia’s Industrial Chemicals Bill 2017, is currently under first reading in the House of Representatives.

Replacing the existing National Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (Ninas), the Australian Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICS) will help to establish a new legal framework regarding the regulation of chemicals used in Australian Industries. The aim of the Industrial Chemicals Bill 2017 is to create and motivate industries to move away from the higher risk chemicals, by reducing the regulatory requirements on the chemicals that are noted as low risk. It will also create changes to the confidentiality arrangements, which includes an introduction of masked chemical names.

Although, now in the first reading, the Bill will need to go to a third reading if it is amended. Once the final Bill is agreed upon by both the Senate and House of Representatives, it will go to the Governor General.

We help US and International clients prepare their chemical packaging labeling for marketing success in Canada. It has been my pleasure to work with Nexreg for the last 2 years on many domestic and international jobs. They have provided my company, and my clients, with CCCR determination and other product assessments in a timely, professional and forthright manner. Their employees, such as James Dayus, have been proactive, professional and personable. I trust them to talk directly to my clients and they have never let me down on professional document completion or deadlines. They are great to work with and I wholeheartedly endorse their work.
