Compliance and enforcement

Information in this section aims to provide the public and businesses with a clear understanding of our role as a regulator of the introduction of industrial chemicals in Australia. You can read about the approach we use to maximise compliance with the Industrial Chemicals Act 2019, what you can do to be compliant if you are introducing industrial chemicals, our monitoring work and powers under the IC Act.

Our compliance-monitoring activities are designed to ensure regulated entities are aware of and comply with the IC Act.

Contraventions of the IC Act may range from relatively minor, inadvertent non-compliance through to more serious deliberate or negligent contraventions.  We assess all referred instances of non-compliance to determine the most appropriate response and use of our resources.
