Coming soon: changes to categorisation, reporting and record-keeping requirements 

Starts 24 April 2024

Amendments to the Industrial Chemicals (General) Rules and Categorisation Guidelines will benefit chemical introducers and better protect Australians and the environment from hazardous chemicals.

See our announcement on changes to the General Rules  See our announcement on changes to the Categorisation Guidelines

We help protect Australians and our environment by assessing the risks of importing or manufacturing (introducing) industrial chemicals and promoting their safe use. We focus on chemicals, polymers, ingredients of products used in printing, plastics, mining, construction, paints, adhesives, consumer goods, cosmetics and more.
