Description: modified (diff)

On visiting the ECHA site, it seems the quantum of aggregated data is too great to permit display/download. However, they plan to make it available in separate files some time in October 2023.

On inspection, the downloaded SWA spreadsheet has unexplained codes as "Notes" and "Sources".

Additionally, SWA themselves say "Safe Work Australia does not make any representation or warranty about the accuracy, reliability, currency or completeness of any material contained within HCIS". See

On the grounds that SWA is not the authoritative source of the changes/additions they advertised on 5 September 2023, we will not process this ticket. Instead, we will update our data from ECHA information when that is made available - with any luck - in October. See ticket #68.

We will close this ticket as "Wontfix" when work commences on #68.
