- Submission: Implementing reforms to NICNAS, the National Industrial Chemical Notification Scheme. Consulation Paper 2 – April 1st 2016
- Exempted and Reported Chemicals
The National Toxics Network (NTN) is a community based network working to ensure a toxic-free future for all. NTN was formed in 1993 and has grown as a national network giving a voice to community and environmental organisations across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. Safe Cosmetics Australia supports the National Toxics Network (NTN) in pursuing assessment of chemicals prior to use in Australian Cosmetics and furthermore, publishing public lists of chemicals that are Exempted or Reported chemicals.
“NTN would like to make it clear that by making submissions and participating in this reform process, we are not endorsing the Government’s approach to these reforms. We will continue to advocate for a pre-market regulatory scheme that puts the health of the community and environment at the centre of regulatory decision-making as well as addresses the significant problem of un-assessed chemicals already in widespread use.”
TEDX Founded by Dr Theo Colborn (1927 -2014), is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to compiling and disseminating the scientific evidence on the health and environmental problems caused by low-dose exposure from chemicals that interfere with development and function, called endocrine disruptors. Why is TEDX unique? TEDX’s work is prevention driven, and it is the only environmental organization that focuses on the problems associated with endocrine disruption attributable to synthetic chemicals found in the general environment.
The Total Environment Centre’s Safer Solutions is committed to changing householder behaviour by increasing knowledge of the environmental, health and safety risks of hazardous household chemicals and by presenting safer alternatives. Safer Solutions is one of the partners of the NSW Government’s environmental education program, Our Environment – It’s a Living Thing (OEILT), which is designed to motivate and encourage people to adopt environmentally sustainable lifestyles. The Safer Solutions campaign addresses three key areas of household hazardous chemical use: in the home, in the garden, DIY renovation.
