Schedule 1        Chemicals

(regulation 1.3, definition of controlled chemical)

Part 1          Reading this Schedule

1              Description of chemicals

         (1)   Each chemical dealt with in Part 2 or 3 of this Schedule is described in a separate item in the form of a small table, as follows:

                (a)    in Part 2, which covers chemicals defined in terms of a single active constituent (whether or not at a concentration above a specified concentration):

                          (i)    the heading is the common name of the active constituent; and

                         (ii)    the first row gives the active constituent’s IUPAC name; and

                         (iii)    the second row gives its CAS number; and

                        (iv)    if the chemical is a prescribed active constituent or prescribed chemical product for the purposes of subsection 69CA (2) of the Act, the third row states that fact; and

                         (v)    the fourth row identifies, for subsection 69CA (3) of the Act, the relevant international agreement or arrangement; and

                        (vi)    the fifth row sets out any conditions or restrictions applicable to the chemical;

               (b)    in Part 3, which covers chemical products defined in terms of 2 or more active constituents (whether or not at concentrations above specified concentrations, and whether or not in a particular form):

                          (i)    the heading is or includes the common names of the active constituents in the chemical product, and may specify the concentration of 1 or more or them and a particular form; and

                         (ii)    the first row gives the names of each chemical (including their IUPAC names and CAS numbers) and their concentration in the chemical product, and, if the item applies only to a particular form of the chemical product, that form; and

                         (iii)    the second row identifies, for subsection 69CA (3) of the Act, the relevant international agreement or arrangement; and

                        (iv)    the third row sets out any conditions or restrictions applicable to the chemical product.

Note   The international agreement or arrangement so identified is also the agreement or arrangement under which the import, manufacture etc of the formulation may be prohibited (absolutely or subject to prescribed conditions or restrictions) under Part 3.

         (2)   There may be 1 or more additional rows in a particular item giving or requiring additional information, and any information so given, or any such requirement, is part of the item.

2              References to controlled chemical in Regulations as applied to this Schedule

                To avoid doubt, a reference in these Regulations to a relevant item in this Schedule for a controlled chemical includes (consistently with the definition of controlled chemical) a chemical product that contains the active constituent dealt with in the item.
