19 DECLARATION OF TRICLOSAN AS A PRIORITY EXISTING CHEMICAL
In accordance with section 51 of the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act,
1989(the Act) as amended, notice is given that the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for
Health and Ageing has declared phenol, 5-chloro-2-(2,4-dichlorophenoxy)-, Chemical
Abstracts Service number 3380-34-5, as a Priority Existing Chemical (PEC) for full risk
assessment.

This notice details the scope and purpose of the assessment of phenol, 5-chloro-2-(2,4-
dichlorophenoxy)-, commonly known as triclosan, and what is required of manufacturers,
importers, formulators and industrial users of the chemical.

REASONS FOR DECLARATION

The reported uses of triclosan in Australia are in some personal care products, plastics,
textiles, carpet underlay/foam, PVC swimming pool liners, and in certain types of cleaning
products.

Widespread use of triclosan provides a number of ways for the chemical to enter the
environment. In tests, triclosan has been shown to be toxic to aquatic species, with very high
toxicity exhibited in algae. The chemical properties of triclosan indicate that it may be
bioaccumulative and persistent in the environment. Additionally, there are reports that
suggest incineration of textile products containing triclosan may result in the formation of
dioxin like substances.

SCOPE AND PURPOSE OF THE ASSESSMENT

The assessment will identify the health and environmental hazards and the potential for
exposure to triclosan in Australia, so that the risks of adverse effects to the environment,
workers, and the public can be determined. Based on the findings of the risk assessment, the
report will make recommendations on how to reduce any identified risks and promote the
safe use of the chemical.

Use of triclosan and/or products containing triclosan may continue while it remains a PEC.

The issue of antimicrobial resistance following use of triclosan has been reviewed recently in
the EU and found not to be of concern under current conditions of use: this report will be
referred to in the NICNAS assessment. Additionally, a EU hazard evaluation of triclosan for
physical-chemical properties, health and environmental effects is ongoing, and a risk
assessment on the biocidal uses of triclosan in the EU is to be conducted in the near future. A
watching brief will be kept on the progress of these EU assessments and, if available, the
findings taken into consideration in this report.

MATTERS TO BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT IN THE ASSESSMENT

The matters that will be taken into account in preparing the assessment report on triclosan are
as follows:

(a) physico-chemical properties of triclosan, including purity/impurities;
(b) uses of triclosan;
(c) extent of occupational, public and environmental exposure to triclosan;

Chemical Gazette Commonwealth of Australia Gazette
No. C 5 6 May 2003

44


(d) any adverse human or environmental effects of triclosan;
(e) risks to people and the environment resulting from exposure to triclosan;
(f) extent to which any risk is capable of being reduced.

REQUIREMENT TO APPLY FOR ASSESSMENT

Triclosan will remain a PEC from 6 May 2003 until a summary assessment report is
published.

In accordance with the Act (section 55), all those who wish to manufacture or import
triclosan during the period that it is a PEC must apply in writing using the PEC application
form. Importers of products/mixtures containing triclosan must also apply for assessment.
There are no application fees. However, there is a penalty for manufacturing or importing a
PEC without first applying for assessment of the chemical. Persons who have applied for
assessment may continue to import or manufacture triclosan and/or triclosan containing
products while it is a PEC.

Applications are required before 3 June 2003. Two or more persons may make joint
applications. Persons other than importers or manufacturers may apply for assessment.

Potential applicants are requested to contact the Contact Officer (details below) to obtain a
PEC information package, which contains the necessary forms and explanatory material.

REQUIREMENT TO PROVIDE INFORMATION

Importers, manufacturers, formulators and users of triclosan play an important role in the
assessment process by providing information. The Act (sections 51 and 58) enables
collection of this information. The information being requested is detailed below.

Where information is listed below as being required, this means there is a penalty under the
Act for non-compliance.

Confidentiality may be claimed for certain items of information. Details on what items may
be granted confidentiality and how to make a formal application for confidentiality are
included in the information package. Note that a formal application and a fee of $500 are
required for claims of confidentiality.

SUBMISSION OF INFORMATION

The closing date for provision of information is 28 July 2003.

Applicants are required to provide the following information:

concentrations of triclosan in the products/mixtures and the product names; and, the
quantities proposed to be imported during the remainder of 2003,

c) annual quantities of the chemical which have been formulated into products/mixtures
by the applicant in the calendar years 2001, 2002 and 2003 to date, the concentration
of triclosan in these products/mixtures and the product names; and, quantities
proposed to be formulated during the remainder of 2003,

d) uses or potential uses of triclosan known to the applicant;

e) methods used or proposed to be used by the applicant in handling, storing,
manufacturing and disposal of triclosan;

f) copies of Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and labels for triclosan and its
products;

g) any unpublished studies relevant to human and environmental toxicity and risks
associated with triclosan and any other published and unpublished information
relevant to the assessment;

h) contact details of the persons to whom the applicant has supplied or intends to supply
triclosan or products/mixtures containing triclosan. This is important information
which enables NICNAS to contact downstream users for information necessary for
assessment. Customer lists are kept confidential.

Applicants are required to provide any relevant new information that becomes available while
the chemical is a PEC.

Persons who are not applicants and who have manufactured and/or imported triclosan in the
two years prior to this notice are required to provide the following information:

a) annual quantities of the chemical which were manufactured in the calendar years 2001
and 2002;

b) annual quantities of the chemical and/or products/mixtures containing the chemical
which were imported in the calendar years 2001 and 2002;

c) end use of triclosan and/or products/mixtures containing the chemical

Persons (who are not applicants) who are formulating or intend to formulate
products/mixtures containing triclosan while it is a PEC are required to provide the following
information by the due date or whenever it becomes known:

a) annual quantities of the chemical which have been formulated into products/mixtures
by the formulator in the calendar years 2001, 2002 and 2003 to date, the concentration
of triclosan in these products/mixtures and the product names;

b) uses or potential uses of triclosan known to the formulator;

20 NICNAS PFOS ALERT 2
In September 2002 the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme
called for information on uses of perfluoroalkyl sulfonate (PFAS) chemicals in Australia -
including information on the specific PFAS chemical perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS).

PFOS is a member of the PFAS group of chemicals. The September 2002 call for
information updated an earlier call for information by NICNAS in July 2000 on PFOS uses in
Australia and was subsequent to a voluntary phase out of PFOS in Australia by 3M since
2000.

The hazards of the PFAS group of chemicals and in particular PFOS have been of
international interest. Australia, via NICNAS and Environment Australia, participated in an
Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Developemnt (OECD) hazard assessment of
PFOS. Based on the OECD report and information from the two data calls by NICNAS, the
NICNAS PFOS Alert 1 http://www.nicnas.gov.au/publications/pdf/Alert_1_PFOS.pdf has
been updated. PFOS Alert 2 can be accessed on the NICNAS website at
http://www.nicnas.gov.au/publications/pdf/Alert_2_PFOS.pdf

If you would like any further information please contact Dr Jane Weder ph: 02 8577 8895;

20 NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL CHEMICALS NOTIFICATION AND ASSESSMENT
SCHEME (NICNAS )
LOW REGULATORY CONCERN CHEMICALS (LRCC)
PUBLIC DISCUSSION PAPER
CALL FOR COMMENT
The LRCC Public Discussion Paper for NICNAS's reform initiative will be released on 7
May 2003 for public comment. The LRCC Public Discussion Paper has been developed
under the auspices of the LRCC Task Force. It has been compiled with the assistance of
LRCC technical working groups consisting of members from government, industry and the
community. The document includes outcomes from consultations with invited individuals
from a range of industry, government and community groups.

The proposed reforms aim to introduce flexibility and optimise resource allocation in the
industrial chemicals risk assessment process. This will enable faster introduction of certain
chemicals of low risk (including chemicals of low hazard or low or controlled exposure) or
previously assessed chemicals, without compromising public health, worker safety or the
environment.

The document will be available from the NICNAS website www.nicnas.gov.au from 7 May
2003.

In addition, www.nicnas.gov.au contains papers on the background to the reform initiative
and other relevant information. A hardcopy can be made available upon request. Please call
Freecall 1800 638 528 with your details.

22 AICS A STEP CLOSER TO RELEASE ON THE WEB
A significant milestone in the history of the Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances
(AICS) was reached on 5 May 2003 when a Deed was executed between NICNAS and the
American Chemical Society Chemical Abstract Service (CAS). The Deed clears the way for
the AICS to be placed on the web. The AICS contains some CAS information and NICNAS
was previously restricted to distributing this information within Australia.
