Step 2: Is the chemical prohibited overseas?

This section relates to introductions that are internationally assessed for the environment only. These must meet all of the criteria described in each step to be considered a 'low risk' introduction under AICIS.

If the overseas report — or any other information from the overseas jurisdiction where the chemical was assessed — states that the chemical cannot be used overseas or is prohibited, then you do not meet our criteria for an introduction that has been internationally assessed for the environment.

If your chemical isn’t prohibited overseas, continue to Step 3 to work out if you meet our criteria for an introduction that has been internationally assessed for the environment.
