NICNAS draft review
Saturday 6 March 2010
Australia's National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) has the latest news on its draft review:
As you are aware, the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) and the Office of Chemical Safety and Environmental Health (OCSEH) are undertaking a joint review of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS).
The review aims to identify research needs to better understand the condition and to identify practical measures that may assist the medical profession with the management of MCS patients.
A working draft report on MCS was released by NICNAS for public comment in November 2008. You provided comments for this working draft report.
Because of significant changes to the report resulting from consideration of comments, NICNAS is now releasing a revised draft MCS report for a final round of public comment prior to finalisation. For your information and comment, find attached a copy of this revised draft MCS report. Also find attached a Summary of Revisions document which summarises the themes of changes to the previous draft resulting from consideration of comments.
Both the draft report and Summary of Revisions document are also available in electronic form from the NICNAS website at http://www.nicnas.gov.au/Current_Issues/MCS.asp.
