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 of 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.

An introduction means the importation or manufacture of an industrial chemical in Australia. An importer or manufacturer of industrial chemicals is an ‘introducer’.

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.

You’ll need to register your business with us if your imported goods contain industrial chemicals and any tariff classifications in our table apply to the goods you’re importing.
