5 1 SECONDARY NOTIFICATIONS ASSESSED BY THE NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL CHEMICALS NOTIFICATION AND ASSESSMENT SCHEME (NICNAS) Section 71(1) and 71(2) of the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act 1989, as amended, requires the Director of NICNAS to maintain a list of chemicals requiring secondary notification, and a list of chemicals that required, but no longer require, secondary notification. Section 71(3) requires these lists to be published once a year. The following lists are published in accordance with this requirement. The chemicals on these lists were originally notified and assessed under either section 23 or 57 of the Act. Because new information became available that potentially impacted on the original assessment, these chemicals subsequently required secondary notification under section 65(1) or 64(2) of the Act. This enabled the original assessment to be updated. 1.

The notified polymer is intended to be used as a pigment dispersant used in solvent-based protective coatings and colourants for light industrial applications such as signs, buildings and boats. Up to 200 tonnes of the notified polymer will be imported per annum for each of the first five years. Hazard Classification No data is available on the toxicity of the notified polymer and hence it could not be classified as hazardous under the Approved Criteria for Classifying Hazardous Substances [NOHSC:1008(2004)]. The polymer has a high molecular weight and low amount of low molecular weight species. It contains an oxazolidine functional group that could react with water to form formaldehyde. Human Health Risk Assessment Under the conditions of the occupational settings described, the risk to workers is considered to be acceptable considering that the polymer is used in industrial situations where spray booths are employed. When used in the proposed manner the risk to the public is considered to be acceptable. Environmental Risk Assessment On the basis of the PEC/PNEC ratio: - The notified chemical is not considered to pose a risk to the environment based on its reported use pattern. Recommendations Control Measures Occupational Health and Safety · - - - - · Employers should implement the following safe work practices to minimise occupational exposure during handling of the notified polymer, as introduced: Avoid direct contact with material; Avoid spills, and minimise direct handling; Spray applications are performed only in spray booths where possible; Avoid contact with water. If this is not possible, systems should be in place to monitor the release of formaldehyde.

Employers should ensure that the following personal protective equipment is used by workers to minimise occupational exposure to the notified polymer, as introduced: - Coveralls, safety goggles/face shield, and gloves to avoid dermal and ocular exposure.

Under Section 64 of the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act (1989) the notifier, as well as any other importer or manufacturer of the notified chemical, have post-assessment regulatory obligations to notify NICNAS when any of these circumstances change. These obligations apply even when the notified chemical is listed on the Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances (AICS). Therefore, the Director of NICNAS must be notified in writing within 28 days by the notifier, other importer or manufacturer: Under Section 64(1) of the Act; if - the notified polymer is introduced in a chemical form that does not meet the PLC criteria. or Under Section 64(2) of the Act; if - the function or use of the chemical has changed from water based paint additive, or is likely to change significantly; - the amount of chemical being introduced has increased from 120 tonnes, or is likely to increase, significantly; - if the chemical has begun to be manufactured in Australia; - additional information has become available to the person as to an adverse effect of the chemical on occupational health and safety, public health, or the environment. The Director will then decide whether a reassessment (i.e. a secondary notification and assessment) is required. Material Safety Data Sheet The MSDS of the products containing the notified chemical provided by the notifier was reviewed by NICNAS. The accuracy of the information on the MSDS remains the responsibility of the applicant.

42 14 PUBLICATION SUMMARY REPORT HE Polymer 300 Summary Report Reference No: PLC/737 Chevron Phillips Chemicals Australia Pty Ltd (ABN 29 107 015 896) of Suite 409, 685 Bourke Road, Camberwell VIC 3124 has submitted a polymer of low concern (PLC) notification statement in support of their application for an assessment certificate for HE Polymer 300. The notified polymer is intended to be used as a drilling mud viscosity modifier used in oil and gas drilling operations. fifty tonnes of the notified polymer will be imported per annum for each of the first five years. Human Health Risk Assessment Under the conditions of the occupational settings described, the risk to workers is considered to be acceptable. When used in the proposed manner the risk to the public is considered to be acceptable. Environmental Risk Assessment Based on the relatively low toxicity and the suggested use patterns, the notified polymer is not expected to pose an unacceptable risk upon the environment. Considering the large quantities of the notified polymer that will be discarded on to the sea floor and the uncertainties regarding the environmental consequences, a copy of the full public report will be made available to the relevant state authority. Recommendations Control Measures Occupational Health and Safety · Employers should implement the following engineering controls to minimise occupational exposure to the notified polymer in powder form: - Use of Local Exhaust Ventilation when handling the notified polymer in powder form. · Employers should ensure that the following personal protective equipment is used by workers to minimise occupational exposure to the notified polymer during certain processes where dust may be generated: - Use of respirator when handling notified polymer in powder form.

Guidance in selection of personal protective equipment can be obtained from Australian, Australian/New Zealand or other approved standards. · In the interest of occupational health and safety, the following guidelines and precautions should be observed for use of the notified polymer as introduced in powder form - The risk of dust explosion exists for airborne dust concentrations above 20 g/m3. Therefore airborne dust concentrations should be kept below this level.

Chemical Gazette

Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No. C 01, 1 January 2008

43 A flammable atmosphere and accumulation of electrostatic charge should also be avoided to prevent risk of a dust explosion. · For health concerns, the level of atmospheric nuisance dust should be maintained as low as possible. The ASCC exposure standard for atmospheric dust is 10 mg/m3 but a recommended exposure limit of 3 mg/m3 has been suggested by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) for "respirable (insoluble) particulates (not otherwise regulated)". A copy of the MSDS should be easily accessible to employees. If products and mixtures containing the notified polymer are classified as hazardous to health in accordance with the Approved Criteria for Classifying Hazardous Substances [NOHSC: 1008(2004)], workplace practices and control procedures consistent with provisions of State and Territory hazardous substances legislation must be in operation.

· ·

Environment Disposal · The notified polymer should be disposed of by authorised landfill.

Storage · Store in a cool, dry place with adequate ventilation away from oxidizing materials, heat, sparks or open flames.

Emergency procedures · Spills and/or accidental release of the notified polymer should be handled by moistening with water to prevent dust, followed by physical collection (e.g. shovelling, sweeping or use of industrial vacuum cleaner).

Regulatory Obligations Secondary Notification This risk assessment is based on the information available at the time of notification.
