The introductions (manufacture or import) of chemicals that are not listed in AIIC should be categorized before starting relevant activities. Under the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS), for different introduction categories, different obligations apply.

Updates on Feb 27, 2024

The Australian Government recently announced the addition of two chemicals to AIIC in accordance with Section 82 of the Industrial Chemical Act 2019. Five years have passed since their assessment certificates were issued. Below are the details of these two chemicals.

Updates on Feb 13, 2024

The Australian Government recently issued a notice to announce the addition of six chemicals to the Australian Inventory of Industrial Chemicals (AIIC).  These chemicals have been added to AIIC as per Section 83 of the Industrial Chemical Act 2019. Their assessment certificates do not include a condition on the period for which these industrial chemicals are permitted to be introduced, and they can be listed in AIIC even if 5 years have not yet passed since the assessment certificates were issued. Below are the details of these six chemicals.

Updates on Feb 2, 2024

The Australian Government recently announced the variation of two chemicals previously listed in the Australian Inventory of Industrial Chemicals (AIIC) after their evaluation, i.e., adding a specific requirement to provide information. The variation will take effect on 29 February 2024

According to the notice, given that these chemicals may cause adverse effects on fertility and development and risk estimates based on the final evaluation statement (EVA00127) on historical uses in cosmetic products indicated a risk to the public, the introduction and use of these chemicals in Australia must be informed so that the risks can be appropriately managed. Therefore, the Executive Director of AICIS concluded that the request for providing information on these chemicals is necessary to manage the risks to human health from the introduction or use of them. Below are the details about the variation.

Background

AIIC serves as a searchable database containing approximately 40,000 chemicals that are manufactured or imported for industrial use in Australia. Industrial chemicals covered by assessment certificates are listed on the AIIC after 5 years, but there are also provisions for early listing. Any registered person can introduce an industrial chemical listed on the Inventory but must comply with the terms of the Inventory listing, along with record-keeping and reporting requirements.

The introductions (manufacture or import) of chemicals that are not listed in AIIC should be categorized before starting relevant activities. Under the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS), for different introduction categories, different obligations apply.
