Reporting and record-keeping obligations

Declarations, reports and records you need to submit or keep after you have categorised your introduction.

Before you read this section, you must first categorise each chemical introduction as one of the following: exempted, reported, assessed, listed or commercial evaluation. Read our guide to work out your introduction category.

Your chemical introduction is authorised under our new scheme AICIS if it’s introduced before 31 August 2022 and meets certain exemption criteria that existed under the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS). You must keep records about your introduction.

These are required for all reported introductions. You must submit your pre-introduction report before you start your import or manufacture in Australia.

You must keep records about your chemical introduction. You’ll use these to submit your ‘annual declaration’. The first annual declaration under AICIS is due by 30 November 2021.
