Chemical reassessment programme
Our chemical reassessment programme reviews hazardous substances that are approved for use in New Zealand.
We review the hazardous substances that are already approved in New Zealand.
We identify and prioritise the chemicals we believe are most in need of review here in New Zealand.
There's a two-step process for reassessing hazardous substances.
Anyone can apply for a reassessment of - or request an amendment to - the existing approval for a hazardous substance. We explain the process here.
This page has information about the chemical approvals we have reassessed. They are grouped by year, and listed alphabetically.
The following chemicals are being reassessed. Find out which chemicals, and how to be involved by making a submission or attending a hearing.
