Scheduling of ingredients directly impacts consumer accessibility to products that contain the ingredient. Ingredients contained in medicines, medical devices, cosmetics and personal care products can be affected. The Advisory Committee on Medicines Scheduling (ACMS) and Advisory Committee of Chemical Scheduling (ACCS) recommend appropriate classification of substances based on risk, which can impact on distribution, labelling, storage & handling and packaging.
Changes to ingredient classification are subject to public consultation. We can flag to you when ingredients in your products are subject to changes to enable you to respond, or we can assist in the preparation of submissions.
