Australia Consults on Removing a Wrongly Listed Chemical from AIIC

The Australian Government intends to remove a chemical (CAS No. 1428963-39-6) from AIIC, and to add the correct one (CAS No. 1431957-88-8).

On April 8, 2022, the Australian Government issued a notice1 to publicly solicit comments on removing a chemical (CAS No. 1428963-39-6) from the Australian Inventory of Industrial Chemicals (AIIC). The consultation will end on June 3, 2022.

According to the Draft Evaluation Statement - EVA000892, this chemical was wrongly listed on AIIC because of the misidentification of the chemical structure, of which the word “hydrolyzed” in the name is just a side reaction and should not be included in the polymer name. Instead, the chemical with CAS No. 1431957-88-8 is the one that should have been listed on AIIC.

Below are the details of the two chemicals to facilitate your understanding.
