From 24 April 2024 there will be changes to categorisation, reporting & record keeping requirements - see announcements on changes to the General Rules & changes to the Categorisation Guidelines.

Assessed introduction

An assessed introduction meets the criteria for 'medium to high risk' for health and/or the environment in the Guide to categorising your chemical importation and manufacture.

We must assess your introduction and issue an assessment certificate before you can import or manufacture the chemical.

More information

There are 5 types of assessment certificates you can apply for based on your categorisation outcome. These are:

  • Health and environment focus
  • Health focus
  • Environment focus
  • Very low to low risk
  • Comparable hazard assessment

Application fee applies.
