Summary of amended delegate-only final decisions

Amendment to delegate-only final decisions not referred to an expert advisory committee

On 16 January 2017, the delegate made four delegate-only decisions. Following the release of the final decisions, feedback from industry indicated that some of the chemicals are used more broadly than initially considered. Hence, these four delegate-only decisions will undergo review to enable further consideration of their broader use pattern. It is anticipated that scheduling advice will be sought from the Advisory Committees on Medicines and Chemicals Scheduling (ACMS/ACCS).
