We've updated our guidance on NICNAS to AICIS transitional arrangements.

Step 7: Can you comply with any conditions or restrictions placed on the chemical overseas?

This section relates to introductions that are internationally assessed for the environment only. These must meet all of the criteria described in each step to be considered a 'low risk' introduction under AICIS.

The overseas assessment of the chemical might include conditions or restrictions on how it can be used so that any risks to the environment are reduced to an acceptable level. If so, you must be able to apply these conditions or restrictions in Australia.

Restrictions may be based on:

  • a chemical’s intended use or end use
  • chemical concentrations in certain types of products 

If there are no conditions or restrictions in the overseas assessment, you meet our criteria for an introduction that has been internationally assessed for the environment.

If the overseas assessment includes conditions or restrictions, and you can comply with the conditions or restrictions, you meet our criteria for an introduction that has been internationally assessed for the environment.

If the overseas assessment includes conditions or restrictions, but you are unable to comply with the conditions or restrictions, you do not meet our criteria for an introduction that has been internationally assessed for the environment.
