The NZIoC is a database of all the hazardous chemical components of products approved under group standards.
Many group standards require the hazardous components of products covered under these approvals to be listed on the NZIoC.
If you have a new product, you can check the list to see if you comply with the group standard condition.
A spreadsheet of the full NZIoC listings can be downloaded here:
