MCS Rally:
31 October 2008

The South Australian Task Force on Multiple Chemical Sensitivity held a public rally yesterday (Friday 31 October) at 12 noon outside the Adelaide office of the federal Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs at 11 Waymouth Street, Adelaide.

The rally called on the federal Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities, the Hon Bill Shorten, MP, to support the development of a national MCS disability access strategy in Australia. The rally was organised following the Federal Minister for Health’s refusal to consider human rights and disability access considerations as part of the national review of MCS by theOffice of Chemical Safety.

Australia lags well behind other developed nations in its response to the disability access needs of people living with MCS. An example of what can be achieved in MCS disability access is the US National Institute of Buildings Sciences Indoor Environmental Quality guidelines for MCS. A copy of the US guidelines is available at We need to develop a similar document in Australia based on human rights considerations.
