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’.
There is no annual declaration in 2020. Your first annual declaration is due by 30 November 2021 and covers the 14 month period from 1 July 2020 - 31 August 2021. After this, our usual registration year applies.
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 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.
