Open for public comment: proposed amendments to the General Rules – closes 17 September 2021.

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 you want to introduce a chemical and you believe that it is listed on the Inventory with an AACN instead of the CAS name, please contact us or submit an application to search for confidentially listed chemicals on the Inventory.
