On May 13, 2022, Australia made public a notice1 to announce the addition of 6 chemicals to the Australia Inventory of Industrial Chemicals (AIIC).
According to Section 82 of the Industrial Chemical Act 20192, these 6 chemicals were added into AIIC because 5 years have passed since the assessment certificates were issued. Below are details of them.
Carbamo(dithioperoxo)thioic acid, N,N-bis(phenylmethyl)-, C,C′-1,6-hexanediyl ester
2-Propenoic acid, polymer with .alpha.-(1-oxo-2-propen-1-yl)-.omega.-methoxypoly(oxy-1,2-ethanediyl), graft, sodium salt
Siloxanes and Silicones, 3-[3-[[3-(coco acylamino)propyl]dimethylammonio]-2-hydroxypropoxy]propyl Me, 3-(2,3-dihydroxypropoxy)propyl Me, di-Me, mixed [[[3-[3-[[3-(coco acylamino)propyl]dimethylammonio]-2-hydroxypropoxy]propyl]dimethylsilyl]oxy]- and [[[3-(2,3-dihydroxypropoxy)propyl]dimethylsilyl]oxy]-terminated, acetates (salts)
2-Propenoic acid, 2-methyl-, polymers with cyclohexyl acrylate, cyclohexyl methacrylate, 2-phenoxyethyl methacrylate and polyethylene glycol hydrogen sulfate Ph ether 1-phenylethyl and 1-propen-1-yl derivs. ammonium salts
Alkenes, C20-24 .alpha.-, polymers with C24-54-branched and linear .alpha.-alkenes and maleic anhydride, C18-22-alkyl esters
Formaldehyde, polymer with 1-phenylethanone, hydrogenated, polymers with 5-isocyanato-1-(isocyanatomethyl)-1,3,3-trimethylcyclohexane
Chemical substances that are listed in the AIIC can be introduced by any registered introducers (importers or manufactures). According to the Industrial Chemical Act 2019, introducers shall apply for registration before introducing an industrial chemical to Australia during a registration year (goes from September 1 to August 31). For chemicals not listed in AIIC, introducers shall apply to the Executive Director for an assessment certificate for the introduction of such industrial chemicals.
