Important note about the hazardous substances database searches

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

We (the EPA) are working on updating our own databases to incorporate this change. The databases are still searchable while we update them, but data in some of them, relating to the following, is no longer correct:

  • Hazardous substance approval status
  • Hazardous substance hazard classifications
  • Hazardous substance controls

The following databases are affected:

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

Please note the EEZ applications and the RMA applications databases are not affected.

Please bear with us while we make these changes. In the interim, for up-to-date information on hazardous substances approvals refer to the approvals page:
