New Zealand Consults on the Reassessment of Two Kinds of Hazardous Substances

New Zealand EPA has proposed changes to the hazard classification of two groups of chemicals. The proposed changes will reassess these chemicals using several key parameters, including Acute toxicity, Skin irritation/corrosiveness, Eye irritation/corrosiveness, etc. The pending reforms will have a significant impact on regulatory compliance obligations for stakeholders dealing in BAC or mixtures containing BAC. EPA is also soliciting information from the public on the reassessment of hydrogen cyanamide, which is used in agricultural setttings in New Zealand to promote plant bud formation.

There are two public consultations open for submission on the New Zealand Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) website now, both of which concern the reassessment of hazardous substances. One consultation is for the reassessment of benzalkonium chlorides (BACs) [1], this reassessment has already finished, and the proposed changes are currently subject to public consultation. The second public consultation has been issued to gather data and information on hydrogen cyanamide containing products [2]
