NICNAS Annual Reporting Due by 28 September

The National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) governs the safe use of a broad range of chemicals including those used in cosmetics, soaps and many other personal care products. If you have introduced new chemicals that are exempt from notification, under permit or self-assessed certificate for the 2017/18 registration year, you must submit an annual report or online declaration to NICNAS by 28 September 2018.    Source: NICNAS reporting

Thinking of Supplying Soap in Australia? Here are the Rules

If you’re planning to sell soap that you import or make, you will probably need to register with the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS). This is because most soap ingredients are regulated as industrial chemicals in Australia. If you want to sell soap you need to register (your business, not your products or ingredients) with NICNAS.  You don’t need to register your business with NICNAS if you only re-sell soap that you bought from an Australian supplier or manufacturer; and/or, make soap from ingredients that you bought in Australia and the process you use doesn’t involve a chemical reaction (such as melting and blending).   Source:  Selling soap
