Annual declaration for all introducers

At the end of every registration year, you'll need to provide certain information and confirm that your chemical introductions were authorised under our laws. We call this an ‘annual declaration’.

The period that your annual declaration covers

What is an annual declaration

This is a declaration you make about the industrial chemicals you imported or manufactured during the previous registration year. It’s an opportunity to confirm that your introductions were authorised under our laws.

You’ll need to answer a few simple questions and complete a legal declaration via our online form.

When you must submit an annual declaration

Your annual declaration is due by 30 November following the end of our registration year: 1 September - 31 August.

Your annual declaration is separate to any other reporting obligations you may have for your introduction.

For example:

  • For certain types of exempted introductions, you’ll also need to submit a once-off ‘exempted introduction declaration’.
  • For reported introductions, you’ll also need to submit a once-off ‘pre-introduction report’ before importing or manufacturing the chemical in Australia.

Who must submit an annual declaration

The registered importer or manufacturer who introduced the chemicals during the previous registration year must submit the annual declaration.

How to apply

The annual declaration form for the 2020-21 registration year will be available on AICIS Business Services to registered businesses (only) from August 2021.
