Non-listing period of 5 years is an added advantage

First Graphene Ltd (ASX:FGR) has received the assessment certificate for PureGRAPH®, which has been assessed under the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS).

PureGRAPH graphene powders are high performing additives available in tonnage volumes with lateral platelet sizes of 20 micrometres (μm), 10 μm and 5 μm.

First Graphene is in a unique position

It is necessary for all producers, or potential producers and importers of graphene to complete the NICNAS application to notify the chemical/graphene.

This involves providing items such as chemical characterisation, toxicology and environmental information, all of which required considerable research.

With the Department of the Environment and Energy sign off, the registration process in Australia has been completed and places First Graphene in a unique position of being the only entity with regulatory approval to manufacture and sell graphene powders in Australia.

READ: First Graphene granted approval to produce and sell graphene powders

When combined with the previously granted REACH registration First Graphene is the only entity in the world with regulatory approval for the sale of up to 10 tonnes per annum of graphene powders in the UK and Europe and to sell out its capacity of graphene powders in Australia.

An advantage of being a first mover is that once the new chemical is approved, it is kept confidential (not on the public or confidential inventory lists) for the first 5 years – this is called the non-listing period.

Leading ethical supplier of high-quality graphene products

First Graphene managing director Craig McGuckin said: “This completes the approval of our graphene materials in Australia.

“In conjunction with FGR’s REACH registration it demonstrates our position as the leading ethical supplier of tonnage quantities of high-quality graphene products.”
