We'll be carrying out a small upgrade to our website today, Thursday 28 October at 5.30 pm. There will a short disruption during this time. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
This database holds detailed hazard information for single chemicals. It contains the hazard classification, study summaries and physical properties of a substance.
The CCID has been updated to incorporate NZ's adoption of the GHS system of hazard classification. Many substances have also had a change of approval status and are now covered by Group Standards instead of individual approvals.
All the substances previously on the CCID are still available.
You can search the CCID by substance name, CAS number or approval number. Note: If you search by CAS number you will not find all the dilutions of a substance or any mixtures such as 37% formaldehyde solution.
If your substance has lost its individual approval you will no longer be able to search by that approval number.
