Takehome: Cosmetic stakeholders subject to notification exemption must submit an annual report or online declaration before Sep. 28, 2018.
According to an announcement from Australia National Industrial Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS), cosmetic stakeholders who have introduced new chemicals to Australia under the condition of: notification exemption, permit or self-assessed certification must conduct annual reporting before 28 September 2018. The report shall detail the introduction activities for the previous NICNAS registration year (1 September 2017 to 31 August 2018).
Enterprises are required to submit a report under the following 2 circumstances:
- Stakeholders meeting the eligibility criteria for exemption (See CL news).
- Holders of a permit [commercial evaluation (CEC), low volume (LVC), or controlled use (CUP)) and/or self-assessment certificate (SAPLC)].
If exemption eligibility criteria are met a report should be finalized as follows:
- For companies that have not previously submitted an annual report to NICNAS or the chemical identities or exemption categories they introduced are different in any way from those reported in 2016-2017, mandatory submission of an annual report via the online NICNAS annual reporting module is required.
- For companies that have previously completed an annual report and the chemicals they introduced in 2017-2018 are the same as those introduced and reported for the 2016-2017 registration year, including using the same category of exemption, it is recommended to make an online declaration.
For permit or certificate holders, companies must include in their report, the name and volume of the chemical and any adverse effects or negative associations the chemical has with regards to occupational health and safety, public health or the environment. The report must be provided within 28 days from the end of the registration year (31 August).
