Reassessments and reviews

erasing a mistake

​Here you can find out how to go about requesting a reassessment of the approval for a hazardous substance.

When reassessments are requested, it’s commonly because there is new information indicating that the risks to human health and/or the environment may not be appropriately managed by the existing controls, or because new information is available on the benefits of the substance.

You can also learn how to apply to have a group standard amended, the classification of a substance reviewed, and a minor change made to a hazardous substance approval.
