More Toxic

Wednesday 23rd August / presented by Chris Butler

Over the past few days the government has made a move to slash the industrial chemical regulation that has been in place for years.

A bill has been introduced by the Assistant Health Minister David Gillespie which allows the industry to self-assess whether new chemicals are low-risk. These low-risk chemicals will then be exempted from being reported to the regulator or having its safety assessed.

With this proposed bill, The National Industrial chemicals Notifications and Assessments Scheme ( known as NICNAS) will assess less than one percent of new chemicals before they're used, rather than the current rate of 3.3 percent.

JANE BREMMER from the National Toxics Network spent 10 years on the “stakeholder engagement committee” for NICNAS, and she's very concerned about this development.
