Important note about the hazardous substances database searches

On 30 April 2021, New Zealand moved to using the Globally Harmonised System (GHS) of classification and labelling Revision 7 for classification of chemicals.

We have updated our database to incorporate these changes and moved to using International Uniform Chemical Information Database (IUCLID) at the same time.

The database searches work in the same way as before but now include GHS classifications and updated controls information.

The approval status for many substances has changed as part of the move to GHS. An overall view of the changes can be found on the following page:

View the Hazardous substance approvals

Alternatively, you can search the database for the substance you are interested in in the usual way. The following databases have been updated.

  • Approved hazardous substances with controls
  • Chemical Classification and Information Database (CCID)
  • New Zealand inventory of Chemicals (NZIoC)
