How we are funded
The full cost of administering AICIS is recovered through fees and charges paid by importers and manufacturers (introducers) of industrial chemicals. This is in accordance with the Australian Government Charging Framework (the Charging Framework), which outlines the policies and principles for cost recovery and explains how it works.
Most of our revenue comes from charges for registration of introducers and fees for assessments of unlisted chemicals. We’ve prepared a table outlining our fees.
Cost Recovery Implementation Statement
An important part of the Charging Framework is a Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (CRIS) outlining:
- how we’ve implemented cost recovery for our regulatory work
how we comply with the Charging Framework
our financial and non-financial performance related to cost recovery
financial forecasts for the current year and 2 forward years
