TCC (NZ) Ltd is staffed by qualified and experienced industrial chemists, HSNO consultants and EPA Test Certifiers. Based in Auckland, we specialise in providing Approved Handler Training and Certification; HSNO consultancy; and regulatory advice to businesses using hazardous substances.

Achieving chemical compliance can often be a daunting and confusing task.  The HSNO regulations are complex and often difficult to understand and interpret within an organisation. We can take the guesswork out of the ordeal by running your site through our HSNO Audit process. Through it we can identify what gaps there are in your compliance and offer advice for orders of action your business can undertake to become HSNO compliant as easily and swiftly as possible.

Furthermore, we provide a wide range of chemical consultancy services to help your business fill in the gaps and achieve compliance.
We offer Approved Handler training and certification (all Classes except explosives) for both hazardous substances in industry and Urban Pest Control chemicals. For those who are already Approved Handlers, we also manage renewals and run refresher courses.
We supplement our Approved Handler courses with Person in Charge (PIC) awareness courses; spill response management, general site and laboratory specific courses; product label review and advice; preparation of New Zealand Compliant Safety Data Sheets and advice on implementing and achieving safe chemical management practices in the workplace.
We also provide a range of resources to simplify this process such as Emergency Management Response Plan templates, Health and Safety Manual Templates, The Hitchhikers Guide to HSNO and self-audit packs for research laboratories seeking to achieve compliance with the HSNO Exempt Laboratories regulations.

Training is provided either on-site, by correspondence courses (currently Approved Handler only) or at our offices on Auckland’s North Shore to suit your needs.


NZ compliant GHS compliant Safety Data Sheets are now a mandatory requirement for all substances allocated to HSNO Groups Standards.  As experienced chemists we are able to classify and allocate your products to relevant Group Standards in addition to authoring, reviewing or updating existing or international MSDS’s.  We also provide labelling advice across a range of product types. If required, we can also offer Australian compliance for our SDS authoring and label advice services in addition to New Zealand compliance.


We work for a growing number of international clients requiring advice on chemical compliance matters under the HSNO and ACVM acts.  Our current international client base extends to Australia, USA, UK, Korea, China, India and the EU.


Our services in the New Zealand agricultural sector extend to providing advice and consultancy on ACVM applications and providing ACVM Data Assessments (chemistry and manufacturing) for clients seeing product approval under the ACVM Act.
