The Hazardous Chemical Information System (HCIS) has been updated with 301 entries of new or amended data.

Accessing the data updates

  2. Click on “Show Advanced Search” and change the “From date” to 09/08/2023 to see the new chemical entries or updated classifications of existing entries

About the data updates
The new data has been sourced from the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) and follows recommendations made to Safe Work Australia by the Australian Inventory of Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS).

Classification information in HCIS is provided for guidance only. It is the duty of the manufacturer or importer of hazardous chemicals to determine if their product is a hazardous chemical, and if so, to classify it accordingly to GHS 7.
