Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme to commence 1 July 2020

Dear Customers,

We have received confirmation that on 1 July 2020 The Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS) will replace 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 industrial chemicals into Australia for commercial purposes must register their business with AICIS and pay a fee as well as categorise each chemical importation or manufacture.

The ban on the use of new animal test data for ingredients solely used in cosmetics will also begin on 1 July 2020.

Kind Regards,

SILA Customer Service
