Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS)


Background of AICIS

Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS)

Australia established the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) in 1990, which is responsible for the registration and review of industrial chemicals in Australia, including the management of notification and registration of new chemical substances. In order to simplify the declaration process of industrial chemicals and make the regulatory work more proportionate to the risk, the Australian government officially announced the reform of the management of industrial chemicals in 2015. The new legislative regime, known as the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS), establishes a new framework for the regulation of manufactured and imported industrial chemicals. In July 2020, AICIS came into effect as Australia's new industrial chemicals management agency and system and replaced NICNAS.

About Us

Our company can help you successfully guide your new chemical substances to Australia.

To introduce a new industrial chemical into Australia, relevant enterprises need to register their business in advance and the chemicals being pre-imported or pre-manufactured need to be assessed by the authority for their level of risk to human health and the environment. Our company is committed to helping companies involved in the manufacture and import of chemicals and end users deal with the complexities of AICIS. Using our extensive regulatory industry knowledge and experience, we are able to tailor regulatory services according to your business needs and ultimately guide their chemical products into the Australian market through the new AICIS process.
