Status of substance request

From 1 July 2016 this service will be replaced with a new service which will provide a statutory determination – that is a formal, legally binding and notified decision. This is due to changes to the new hazardous substances regime introduced by the Government.

To manage the change we are bringing in a transition period, to run from 1 April through to 30 June 2016.

We are no longer accepting new requests and will return any requests where we are waiting for more information, unresolved, by 30 April 2016. We will finish all ‘live’ current requests by 30 June 2016.

During the transition period we can still offer a formal determination about whether a substance is hazardous.

If you need more information about your substance, or help with determining if it fits into an existing approval please contact us on:

0800 HAZSUBS (0800 429 7827) or
hazardous.substances@epa.govt.nz
explosives@epa.govt.nz

You may also self assign.
