About this inquiry

The Industrial Chemicals Environmental Management (Register) Bill would establish a national framework to manage the ongoing use, handling and disposal of industrial chemicals, in order to reduce impacts on the environment and limit people's exposure to industrial chemicals. The General, Customs and Excise bills would establish a cost recovery model to implement the national framework to make, vary and revoke scheduling decisions for industrial chemicals.
