First Graphene Ltd (ASX:FGR) will be granted approval by the Department of Health National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) to produce and sell its PureGRAPH graphene products in Australia.

This follows the company’s application to have the graphene materials notified and assessed under NICNAS in February 2019.

These products will be manufactured and sold from the company's existing production facility which has annual production capacity of 100 tonnes.

This places FGR in a unique position of being the only entity with regulatory approval to manufacture and sell graphene powders in Australia.

“Leading ethical supplier”

First Graphene managing director Craig McGuckin said: “This was a critical approval in the continued growth of our graphene materials business in Australia.

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

“My thanks to our staff and university collaborators who worked on the successful application to the Department of Health.”

Only entity in the world with regulatory approval

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

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

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