Welcome to the website of the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS). We started on 1 July 2020. Read about us.

What is an AICIS approved chemical name?

Some chemicals on the Inventory will have an AICIS Approved Chemical Name (AACN), rather than a CAS name. An AACN is a generic or masked chemical name that we publish if we’ve approved an application to protect a chemical’s identity as confidential business information (CBI).

If your chemical is listed on the Inventory with an AACN instead of the CAS name, you need to contact us so we can confirm the chemical's identity.
