Withdraw a pre-introduction report
Who can withdraw a pre-introduction report
The chemical introducer, or their nominated agent, can withdraw a pre-introduction report that has already been submitted for a reported introduction on AICIS Business Services.
Note: this is different from cancelling a draft report which you can do any time on AICIS Business Services before you submit it to us.
When you should withdraw a pre-introduction report
- If you did not categorise your chemical introduction – you should withdraw your report then work out which category applies by using our Guide to categorising your chemical importation and manufacture.
- If your chemical introduction is in the ‘listed’ category – you’re not required to submit a pre-introduction report for listed introductions.
- If you submitted 2 or more pre-introduction reports for the same chemical – you should withdraw the incorrect or duplicate report. If you make a mistake or enter incorrect information, you should vary your pre-introduction report instead of submitting another one.
- you’ve worked out that you incorrectly categorised your introduction in the reported category
- you have already introduced the chemical in the reported category
- the correct categorisation is in the assessed category
How to withdraw a pre-introduction report
- Log in to AICIS Business Services and go to the Pre-Introduction Reports (PIR) tile on the dashboard.
- Click 'View your portfolios' and 'PIR dashboard'.
- Find the pre-introduction report and click 'Withdraw report'. If the button does not display, it means that the report is still a draft and you have not submitted the report to us.
- Click ‘Yes’ if the chemical has been introduced into Australia since the PIR was submitted, otherwise click ‘No’.
- Click ‘Withdraw report’. You will receive a confirmation email.
You must keep records about any introduction that has occurred for 5 years, even after you have stopped introducing the chemical. Learn more about reporting and record-keeping obligations.
