Chemical compliance under Alert Level 2

21 May 2020

To comply with New Zealand's Alert Level 2 requirements, building cleaning and sterilising, hand sanitisers and other personal protective equipment will be in high demand.

We remind all importers and manufacturers of hand sanitisers, and cleaning and sterilising products to ensure that their products comply with the requirements of the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (HSNO) Act in regards to their labelling, safety data sheet, packaging and assigning the hazardous substances to the appropriate HSNO approval.

Make sure your hand sanitising product is legal in New Zealand
