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

Getting started: registration, importing and manufacturing

If you manufacture or import industrial chemicals - or products that release industrial chemicals - then you must register with us.

A quick outline on what you need to do if you're planning to introduce (import or manufacture) industrial chemicals - or products that release industrial chemicals - for commercial purposes.

If all the ingredients in your product that you import or manufacture meet our naturally occurring chemical definition, you do not need to register with us, but if an ingredient does not meet our definition, you must register.

We define an article as a finished good that is designed for a particular purpose and that does not release a chemical during use.
