New AICIS Scheme will replace NICNAS on 1 July 2020

Dear Valued Clients,

The Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS) will replace the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) on 1 July 2020 as the new national regulator of the importation and manufacture of industrial chemicals in Australia.

Anyone who imports or manufactures (introduce) industrial chemicals or products that release industrial chemicals into Australia for commercial purposes must:

  • register their business with AICIS and pay a fee
  • categorise each chemical importation or manufacture (introduction) into 1 of 5 categories

If you have any clients who import industrial chemicals they need to be informed of the new AICIS scheme.
